Hello folks,

i just got a microsoft elite bluetooth keyboard and mouse set and after some troubleshooting + reading the posts on this forum, got it to work.

I still have one question however....

is it possible to boot up from the keyboard?
my motherboard supports powering on your computer by pressing a keyboard combination (such as ctrl + F1). I had it setup on my old wired keyboard and just love it.

But now, i cant seem to get it work with the bluetooth keyboard. Am i asking for too much? Is there a way to get it to work?

I doubt there is a way, bluetooth needs to have your OS running before it can communicate with your computer.
