Is there a key combo that will work as the power key to turn your computer on if your keyboard doesn't have a power key?

Most BIOSes have an option for power on key combinations. Some even have power on password support (ie, you type "monkeytoast" and the computer turns on).

Cool part of it is, you can disconnect the power switch inside the computer and then no one can get on it that doesnt know the password (or how to connect the switch or clear the CMOS of course...).

Check your BIOS.

I know about the BIOS option and all I have in "off, Power Key , Any Key". "Any Key" just isn't going to work thats why I was wondering if there is a Key Combo on older Keyboards that will work like the "Power Key" that new mulimedia keyboards have.
