Windows 7: How can I prevent my keyboard from turning on my computer?

How can I prevent my keyboard from turning on my computer?

I set the mouse not to wake up my computer, and that's great.. I do like to wake it with the keyboard though so I left that on..

What I would be happy to do now is to keep my keyboard from turning on my computer when I turn it all the way off.. I'd like just the button on the front to do that.

Thank you!

cxskate, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Something like that would be a bios setting and nothing to do with Windows. Going to have to have a look in the bios power options for the option (if present). If in doubt filling in your system specs,

would help, and we can help you look.

Look under keyboard options... I found the option in mine, just have to dig for it... Here's a pic of what it should look like:
