    thats really odd, a new one, is your computer new, cuz there is new tech for turning on pc's, like an hp laptop where you wave your hand over it and turns on.

    It wouldn't surprise me either, if your BIOS had mouse options to enable a "system on" function. I know you can turn on your system with the keyboard in the same fashion....just by pressing the Space key or what not. I used to have this one set like that till our little one figured it out!
