I've just discovered a strange problem.  While my PC was off, I was cleaning my keyboard when all of a sudden, my PC turned on.  At first I thought that I accidentally bumped into the power button on my PC, but what actually happened is that I pressed the power button on my keyboard.

 

After searching the net and following instructions on how to disable this feature, I've been unable to find out how to stop this from happening.  I'm running Windows 8.1 and sleep & hybernate mode are disabled. 

 

Does anyone know which setting to change to disable the keyboard power button?

 

Thanks in advance.

It would be helpful if you post the make and model of this computer.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I think I need to take a closer look at my advanced BIOS settings to make sure I didn't miss anything. 

 

My PC is custom built.  I assume you want to know which motherboard and chip is in it.

 

ASUS H97M-E/CSM Socket 1150 Intel H97 Chipset
Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor

See this thread. Look in Device Manager for HID compliant controller and disable it by right clicking. Do not uninstall

Thanks.  I'll take a look tomorrow.
