You can leave one switch turned off (say switch # 1) and switch on the other two. In these 2, turn off one switch (say switch # 2) before you go to upstairs.

Now the one still glowing is connected to Switch # 3. The one that is slightly warmer to touch is Switch # 2 and the one thats cold / normal is Switch # 1.

Is this the right answer?
