Using BIOSCONFIGUTILITY.EXE to set Power-On password

Does anybody know whether it's possible to configure the 'Power-On' password by using the BIOSCONFIGUTILITY.EXE utility ?

(Power-On password .... not the Adminsitrator password).
Please use plain text.

The power on password is usually set by using the F10 Setup. You don't say what model you have but some models have a jumper on the motherboard to enable/disable power on password.

If your problem is that you need to clear a power on password that can be done by clearing CMOS.

Hope this helps.
