    Hey All

    Thinking about buying a Logitech Elite Keyboard, and I know from a review that the Power/Sleep button works like the PowerButton when the system is on (brings up the dialog, holding it shuts system down)

    But what I want to know is, can you boot up a machine with it?

    Thanks in advance!

    So, they reviewed the functionality of this button for shutting the system down but not for powering it up? What kind of review is that?

    is it wired or wireless? wireless will definitely not work to power it on (for what i hope are obvious reasons). wired should work, but i don't have one to test it out on :(

    anyone with anything more conclusive than my "it should work" ??

    I'm not really a fan of having the power button on the keyboard. But then again, the powerbutton on my Mac isn't far away. ;)

    Nope, I agree... thats why I am asking here :)

    I usually would not care, but this is on a Mac Mini system for my mom, and she isn't the most mobile person and reaching up, across a desk and behind the mini is significantly less convenient then a key on the keyboard.

    Oh, and this is the wired version
