I think I solved the problem! First, u turn switch #1 on! Let it be a few mins, and than, u turn it off! Than u turn switch #2 on and enter the room! Now, if lightbulb is on, than it's switch #2, cuz all other switches r off! If it's still off, than u approach the lightbulb and touch it, and if it's worm, than it's switch #1 cuz it was on for few mins and lightbulb got hot from heat of light, and if it's not hot, than the only switch left is #3, and it must be that one than!

^^ Little bad english, but I think I got point!
