    Default Power on by USB Keyboard?

    Is this generally not possible or depends it on the mobo used?

    Generally your BIOS just has to have USB keybord and power on by USB device enabled.

    Just what me thinks but still...!

    Gigabyte support answered today saying not with USB only PS2 will work - sounds to me like a cheap way out for them.

    I would not mind IF I had an ps2 adapter but there is non supplied with my Microsoft keyboard.

    Yes, must be PS/2. You can grab an adapter for $1-2, if you need help finding one let me know

    Yes, I know what you mean but that compact adapter (that should be part of every retail keyboard) is not sold here.

    Ahh! How did you get burned? You should not have any issues buying a 50 cent one from a Taiwan or China seller, even if you did you would only loose less than a dollar

    They are literally $0.50 here, less than half a cheeseburger.

    Would it be easy for me to ship to Australia from the US? I mean is there custom papers and all that I would need to file?

    If not I could mail you one no problem

    I've no idea about customs' procedures but the will probably demand $20 for processing (sigh)
