    hi all been ages since i was on this site,but if you want answers .........

    ok, i've got a jetway v266b mobo that currently supports a xp2100 chip and 512 sdram ( i know i know) built it recently, the system seems to work fine except that ,i like to switch the power off at the mains after i shut the pc down(fire concious) when i put the power on at the mains the pc boots up without pressing the on button on the front of the pc?this is really annoying , i thought that i put the connectors for the case in wrongly so i tried the same thing without any of the front panel connectors connected and the pc still boots up when i switch the mains on so its not the connectors.i've been through the bios and tweaked it somewhat but im not really sure what i should be looking for ,can anyone help.or is there a site that i can get this info from
    cheers sparky

    CHeck the BIOS, I once had a motherboard where you could tell it what to do if there ws a power failure.

    If you are lucky there is a bios setting. I say lucky because I have 4 MB and only one works this way. I actually like it.

    The setting is under power management. On my gigbyte it reads something like:

    "How to respond after a power outage."
    Restart the PC is what I select to get power on from the mains.
    Stay off, or something like that will put the PC into the waiting for the front panel switch state.

    thanks all who replied, been through the bios and tweaked just about everything that i could think of , still no joy .....ah well i guess i'll just install a switch between the mains and the pc ,(my son has his ps2 on the same power adapter so thats why im doing this as every time he switches on his ps2 at the mains the pc boots up )

    cheers sparky

    from what i can see,go into bios > in power managment, > wake up events, make sure its all disabled in there.

    Most ATX boards support this feature. Usually it's called "Power On After Power Fail" with options Enabled, Disabled and Previous State. Can't find anything about it in your manual though.
