    You mean what to do to turn on a motherboard that isn't in a case? Easy,
    take a screw driver or paperclip or anything conductive and temporarily
    connect the PWR_ON (power on) pins together. This will do the same thing
    as pushing the button. To turn it off, put the paperclip or whatever on
    the pins for 5 or 6 seconds (the same thing as holding the power button for
    5 or 6 seconds)

    any momentary contact , normally off switch will work

    the power is not important...even a 1 amp switch will be more than adequate
