The purpose of it is to be able to run more fans than you already have slots for.
The reason you have to short it out is that in any PC power supply, those two pins need to be shorted in order for it to start. Normally, that plug goes into the motherboard, which will have a power switch wired up to it. When you press the power switch, the motherboard knows to short those pins.
If the thing had a connector for that motherboard plug, then it could start by itself. Without that, it cannot.
