I've a Frontech UPS which I use to run my PC. But the problem is as the switch of the UPS is too small I can't switch off it because my finger can't get through it. Because of shortage of money I can't even purchase a new UPS. If I shut down the main switch in the switchboard from where the power comes to the PC, then the UPS blinks with bips sound. I think, it can harm my PC. So, is there any other way to effectively shut down the UPS? The hardware engineer guy saying to pull out the plugs of the UPS & connect it to the back of CPU. But there is no plug points to put the plugs in CPU.

The engineer is telling you to bypass the UPS by plugging the PC directly to power without the UPS.

1) Why are you turning it off? (Mine all stay on 24/7/365).

 

2) Can't you use something other than your finger, such as a pencil, pen, small stick or tree branch or similar, to push the button?

Yes, the power switch has guide edges that may not allow some larger size digits to reach in far enough to contact the switch.  A pencil comes in handy.
