    Default Power Button Issue

    Hey guys,

    This is my first post, and I just want to say thank you for having this awesome resource available. I have decided to build my own computer for video editing, and motion graphics. I went with the asrock 890gx pro3 as my motherboard (it was rated very highly). I am also using the Rosewill Armor RT as my case. I have set everything correctly, and everything works fine, EXCEPT ONE THING. Using the front power button, I can turn the machine fully on, and everything is fully powered. However, I cannot turn the machine OFF with that same button. I have checked, and there is only 1 cord coming from my case that is listed as "front power". If I unplug it completely from the "Power Button" port on the Motherboard, then I cannot power it on at all, which makes me think that is the ONLY place for that to go.

    There should be two wires a + and a -
    Attach them to the same +/- pins on the mb,check in the bios and windows that when you press the front power button that its set to instant off,you can look in windows power saving options
