We have purchased several Vectra VL420's. The power-on by spacebar feature does not work. Why is this? Has HP removed or overlooked this feature. If it is an oversight, can it be re-introduced by means of a BIOS update?

These three pins can be set to 1-2 to disable power-on and 2-3 to enable keyboard power-on. HP in their wisdom do NOT provide these three pins to be jumpered.. There is only three small solder points where these pins should be. So, in answer to the question, these Vectra VL420's do not support, and from what I can deduce, will never support keyboard power-on. I will continue to attempt to get a definite statement from HP.
