Very Simple, turn on one switch and leave one switch off, and tun one switch on for a few minutes and then turn it off. Go into the next room. There will be one cool bulb off for the switch that was never turned on, there will be one bulb on for the switch you turned on and then there will be one bulb that will still be warm or hot for the switch you turn on momentarily.

Flip one switch on for a couple minutes, then turn if off. Flip the second switch on for 10 seconds, then turn if off. Next go into the room with the bulbs and touch each bulb. The hotest bulb belongs to the switch that was on the longest, the warm bulb belongs to the switch that was on for 10 seconds and the cold bulb belongs to the remaining switch.

You can turn one switch on and off constantly, do this for a whole day and the metal inside will break. then turn on another one and go to the other room and take the off bulb off and shake it to listen to the thing inside. (for precaution if you think the metal won't break after such harsh torture on the bulb, turn that first switch on and let the bulb get hot)

simple you just turn one of the switches on wait for a minute or so then it off, atfer ur done with that quickly flick on the other bulb then walk into the room and remember which switch you had turn on first that bulb should be warmer then the other two. that would be switch number 1 next the light that is on would be switch number 2 and finally that last light would b switch number 3 ^-^!!

Turn one switch on and leave all the others off, go to the room with the bolts and remove one of the bolts that is not lit and take it with you.
Now you have successfully identified one switch with one bolt, let's say switch 1 connects with bolt 1 and you have unplugged bolt number 2, all you have to do is to identify the two remaining switches.

Go to switch 2 and unplug one of the two cables from the switch and connect it to the bolt, touch the other side of the bolt with the part of the switch where you've unplugged the cable and turn on the switch. If the bolt you're holding is lit then it means that switch 2 connects with bolt 3 (and switch 3 with bolt 2) else switch 2 connects with bolt 2 (and switch 3 with bolt 3)

Don't know if this solution is already posted before...
