power on system by keyboard or mouse instead of power button - Windows XP/2000/ME

I was running 98se before and I could turn on my computer by pressing the mouse or space bar but now since I changed to XP that function doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know how I can reset the system so that function will work again?...

    You could go into the Device Manager to check the Properties\ power
    management settings for your keyboard and mouse. Expand the
    categories, then right-click to see Properties, right-click.

    If you mean it's not starting from a powered-off state, that's a bios issue,
    not Windows, as the HD isn't even active at that point.

    Or are you trying to come out of standby or hibernation?
