You should be able to short the 2 pins with something metal -- and hold it there just until it turns on. PSU should be already on.

I figured a jumper on it would be sufficient...guess I can try a screwdriver. Brb...if I don't post within 5 minutes, I electrocuted myself.

Thanks, rep all around when I get the time.

oh, to explain my previous post:

When the switch is switched off it considers it a power failure. When the power is switched back on to the PSU it calls the bios. If the status is set to full on or something like that It will power the entire system back on because it considered the switch off a failure.
No screwdriver needed after that, close the case and you are good.

Dont like the sound of that

Anyway, when your doing the shorting out. Dont forget you are only dealing with 12v, not enough to feel let alone kill you

no. When you shut down the OS just be sure to switch off the PSU... Unles it doesn't have a switch which would be odd.

Basically, the power switch IS the PSU switch.

So it will let you shut it down! Then turn off the power supply!
Then , when you turn the supply back on it starts up ;-)
Cool

So. Now I've got another problem. I can't get past the "welcome" part of the MSI BIOS. It gives me options to POST or enter the setup BIOS (Tab and Delete respectively), but it won't recognize any keystrokes.

I've tried:

USB keyboard through my KVM
USB keyboard directly into a USB port on the motherboard
PS/2 keyboard plugged into motherboard

PS/2 doesn't light up when plugged in, but the USB one does. Still no recognition....

I'll change the topic to reflect this

They will say unplug power supply, pull out battery and short out those pins a couple of times and maybe leave for ten mins or so then put back battery and power lead. jump pins and see if sorted.
While in bios do the power thing ;-)

No dice. I'm thinking the board doesn't like PS/2 and/or Apple keyboards...

I completely did away with the KVM for now. Everything's hooked up directly...monitor/keyboard...oh wait...maybe it wants the mouse connected as well?

Worth a shot...
