Is my power supply dead?

I have just received the Corsair CX600 power supply but I'm not quite yet ready to build my PC but I thought Id give it a test plugged it and switched the power button on the back but nothing happened?

Is my power supply dead or does it need to be told to switch on via the motherboard and power switch on the machine?

Nope, its fine. It needs to be pugged into the motherboard which in turn has to be switched on.
