Windows 7: how Can i boot My system with a Keyboard key in Windows 7

how Can i boot My system with a Keyboard key in Windows 7


Previously I had WINDOWS 10 on my pc, however the internet speed was not good so I degraded to WINDOWS 7. One more thing to add, I have an issue with power button( Button on the cabinet) on my desktop computer and it didn't work, when I was using windows 10 I used to boot the pc by pressing ENTER. Now as I've degraded to WINDOWS 7, I need to manually open the cabinet and press the pin in the mother board with the help of screw driver. Can someone help me to provide an alternate way to boot pc similar as that of pressing some random key in WINDOWS 10.

Sounds like the keyboard was waking Win10 from hibernation, which is what its fast start function basically is. Win7 doesn't have that function. Though it does have hibernation, and you can set up the keyboard or mouse to trigger it, it needs a full boot down periodically for resource management. You should be able to get a replacement power button cheap on ebay.
