Turning off the motherboard after POST test

Hi there,

When i short out the power switch to test POST before installing the components into the case, is it safe to just short the power switch again to turn off or is there a proper way to power down?

cheers

That's perfectly safe. You're simulating the power button by shorting the two pins
