Well, really old school power supplies had a physical switch or button on the power supply. The power button of the computer was hooked to a plastic piece that when depressed, pressed the power button of the power supply.

This was in addition to the power switch on the back of the power supply that still exists today.

Pictuer the power supply going in your pc, you know the bunch of cables that goes into your motherboard? two of them when touched together will "jump" the power supply on.
