It could be a bad fastboot cable, have seen people buy them before and not work. I recommend the blackhat adapters myself that hashcode mentions on his 2nd bootloader + twrp tutorial.

It should switch itself on when you plug the cable in and boot straight to fastboot. If not then the cable could be bad.

The only difference between a normal cable and a fastboot cable is pin 4 has power from pin 1. Bodging a cable is an option.
