I'm looking to build my own power button for my computer.
Most motherboards have a pair of
PWR_SW pins that your case power button typically attaches to via two female pin connector wires (I don't know the correct term). This is the part I plan on replacing. Attached to some button like this for example: https://www.adafruit.com/product/558
I'm also aware you can short the two pins by touching them both at once with a screwdriver and most motherboards will just turn on– is this basically what a switch / button does? If I attach two wires to the button above and press the button– I'm guessing that essentially does what the screwdriver does and completes the circuit– turning the computer on?
