If you want it to shut down gracefully, you could make a circuit that parallels the ATX power switch and provides a momentary contact closure to signal the computer to shut down. You would have to configure your operating system to power down (instead of going to sleep or hibernating) when the power button is pushed momentarily.

If you don't care about being graceful, you could control the mains power to the computer via a relay under PIC control.
