Windows 7: Dedicated Power On button on keyboard doesn't work

After wasting my money on a couple of USB to PS/2 adapters I dug further and found those adapters [purple or black] only work with keyboards that originally came with them, couldn't use the adapter with just any keyboard. The mice don't seem to have that problem with the green adapter.

Oh. Then that's why it didn't work with my other keyboard! Thank you for the information

Not yet, I can't find that adapter :S I found a mouse adapter but that won't work I guess? (It's green and the keyboard one should be purple right?)

I'll post if I happen to find it but that might take a while
