plug in the power supply in the power outlet and touch a screw on it or what ever is hooked up to the ground the power supply chase is grounded just screw a screw if it is painted ;) 
always remember if you don't have a strap no problem touch the power supply before touching components:) 
even if it is not switched on at least for it to be hooked up to power outlet

the switch will only turn on the power supply. power supply is always grounded with or with out turning it on .you can but i highly recommend this just to be sure

touch something metallic, don't work on the carpet or somewhere static might build up. i build my own pc, clean it, upgrade it, never had an issue.
but if you want you can buy one of those anti static wrist strap thingy, lol , sorry not sure what it's called
