  1. Hey im currently building a home theater PC out of a Xbox 360 case, and i was wondering if theres a wireless keyboard out there with a power on button. So when i get my own place in a few months i can just tuck away a keyboard n mouse near the couch n kick it on with the keyboard. Otherwise my other thought is kinda annoying if my room mates wana turn it on. Which is install "logmein" on it and then remote to it to boot it and just control it from my laptop.. If you know of a keyboard with a power up feature... if thats even possible or any other suggestions please give me a heads up.

    Thanks matt

    the motherboard has to support "power on from keyboard" even then im not sure if a wireless would work, although i cant say for certain.

    If the Mobo does have the option in the BIOS then most media keyboards you can buy have a power button on them or one that is accessed via CTRL or Shift

    You cant turn on a pc via any kind of remote control program, as it requires a physical press of a power button.
