  1. Hi,
    On an Asus p8768-v. I have enabled power on by spacebar and power on by mouse
    in the bios and it's not working.
    The same keyboard and mouse did do this on my previous Asus p6t-se.
    Any ideas anybody?
    Ta,
    Mike

    Sorry, meant to say power on WORKED on my previous asus board...:)

    Do you mean Asus P8Z68-V or Asus P8Z68-V LE? Anyway, what kind of keyboard are you using?

    It's a Dell wireless keyboard and mouse.
    It works fine in Windows and it powered on my previous asus p6t no problem,

    I checked the manuals for the BIOS' of the two motherboards I mentioned and the P8Z68-V does not support power on by keyboard and the P8Z68-V LE does support power on by keyboard but only a PS/2 keyboard. However, the P6T also only supports power on by PS/2 keyboard so I'm not sure why that worked in the first place.
