What pins should I short to start power supply so I can test it?

  1. This is an attempt at understanding what makes a power supply wake up.

    I believe that you have to short a couple pins in order to make this happen.
    Anyone know what pins to short?
    Or am I on the wrong track?
    I have a Power Supply checker that causes the PS to come to life when it is plugged into the molex connector. However, i am curious if, in the absence of this tester, if I could check the PS with a multimeter.
