    Question
    Does 915-M5 V1.1 support "Power on by PS2 KB/Mouse"? 


    Answer
    The 915-M5 V1.1 supports "Power on by PS2 KB/Mouse" only from S1 & S3 with the setting of "Wake up by PS2 mouse & Wake up by Keyboard" under "Power Management" in BIOS. It does not allow you to power on system from S4 & S5 by PS2 KB/Mouse.


    Question
    Why does 915-M5 not allow me to install it's audio driver under WinXP (without service pack)? 


    Answer
    Since the 915-M5 comes with HD audio, it is a must to update OS to WinXP SP1 or above before you install it's audio driver.
