I have always used Asus mobos with the power on by ps2 keyboard option. Well I got the urge now to put together an i5 system, but the Asus Z68 mobos don't have ps2 ports. I can just get a P67, but was wondering: does nobody use poweron by kb but me? Everybody uses the power button, or uses suspend? Curious to know if there are better options

I always use the power button to turn on any PC, I never use suspend or sleep. I leave any PC on until I'm done with it and then I power down using the OS.
My way is not mandatory, it's just the way I do it and suggest the same to all of my customers.
