Hello,

is it generally possible to boot an os when the power adapter of a computer gets plugged in?
If so, I am trying to find a way to do this with my asus P8Z77-M PRO ? I wasn't able to find a suitable option.

Thanks in advance

Hi,
What do you mean? The power switch doesn't work?

Hi, thanks for your reply.
I want the computer to automatically start, when i connect the computer with the power cable, so i don't have to push the start button (the hardware button)

I see. I think that you can do this by shorting the green and the black wires from the PSU 24-pin ATX connector, but I don't think it's a good idea.
"ATX power supplies are turned on and off by a signal from the motherboard. They also provide a signal to the motherboard to indicate when the DC voltages are in spec, so that the computer is able to safely power up and boot".

Oh ok, nice answer. I like you to think about modifying the hardware.
Anyways, i was hoping to get it work by using bios settings. As you said, this is maybe not a good idea and i think i shouldn't go shorting the wires.
