    Hi, This maybe a bit of a stupid question.

    My PC keeps powering on when i tap on the keyboard (accidently).

    this is very annoying.

    My motherboard is an Asus Sabertooth 99fx R1.

    How do i stop this. Thanks in advance.

    do you mean physically powering off when it is powered off completely?
    or do you mean it is waking up from sleep/hibernate?

    assuming it's a USB keyboard, check the BIOS for USB power-on settings.

    I found the problem, it was windows 8 and its hybrid shutdown mode.

    Thanks Chenks.
    When you said sleep/hibernate, it got me thinking
