    Hello, I'm wanting to use a computer PSU as a PSU. The one I've just bought
    doesn't work. I'm assuming that's because it needs a computer. So.... what
    does the motherboard do, maybe connects the grey to the green, or the purple
    to ground, or...does anyone know please??

    And also ground the green wire to turn it on. Well...possibly green.
    IF it's one of them there proprietary ones it might not be the green
    wire...but usually it's the green one.
