Yep, I've done it. I soldered a 2-pin header to the pins on the MB, and
replaced the switch at the front in the minitower with a toggle switch.
If you don't like the thought of soldering on the MB, it's just as easy
to splice two wires into the ones that goes to the connector from the
power supply.

As always, when making changes to electrical equipment.
Be careful, lots of nasty things can happen if things go wrong.
Shock, death by electrocution, fire, or...
