I wonder how you send the BIOS the shutdown command (normally controlled by holding down the power button for about 5 seconds) using that toggle switch. I normally turn my linux computers off by issuing the 'poweroff' command, but if the kernel has panicked during operation then that often fails and I need to kill the power using the BIOS controls.
