Hi,

I'd like to use this "wake when pressing any button on the keyboard" option (that's on the Asus Rampage Gene II motherboard). But it says it only works for PS2 keyboards, and I have a USB keyboard....

I do have a few extra of those little green USB to PS2 mouse adapters. Is there a recommended adapter for the USB to PS2 for keyboard? and would performance be hindered on a gaming system?


Thanks

There's no such thing as a recommended usb to ps2 adapter. Plug in what you have there and do your thing.

Just remember that PS/2 ports are not hot swappable.
Swapping them while the computer is running could cause keyboard errors or motherboard damage at it's worst.
