this is something i have just noticed with starting my computer.i log out then turn off as
usual,everything shuts down as it should followed
by the usual silence,but instead of turning on the tower unit in the usual i have just got to
hit the space key and the computer will restart,
i know this is normal when you put it into sleep mode but it is doing this from a complete shutdown
is this normal,have i just never noticed this before,or is my computer just keen to get going
thanks for any help.

I would say its in your Power settings held within Control Panel>>Power Options then look and check in a;; the tabs like Power, Advanced and Hibernate..

I have set both my pc's to start from the space bar. It is done from the BIOS.

Both pc's have a Asus motherboard, you even get the option of using the mouse to start up.

If I turn the power off at the mains I have to start in the normal way by pressing the on button.
