    Normally you can assign what you want the power button to do. Shut down, hibernate, sleep etc.

    Thanks mste is that done via windows software? There's nothing in bios. Only thing I can see the switch does is off on 1 press or off after pressing for 4 secs :-(

    Ride Runner is Free now... I seem to recall it was pay for a while or atleast required a registration or something but I see it is now fully free. Maybe it was shareware? Not sure...

    Anyhow doesn't matter, just looked and it is definitely free now.

    I am not sure that board will run with win7, it's very old and might not have any drivers I think your best bet is XP and then use the pos hack on it to continue getting updates. from the looks of the specs I'd say circa 2003-2005 era. Good luck SNO

    Only way to know if it will work with Win7 is to try it. If it was setup to run Vista chances are it will run on Win 7 without issue.

    Just be aware that Win 7 32 bit is more compatible with the older operating systems than 64 bit.

    Beyond all of that you can always update your board depending on your location. You can get a fully populated board for cheap these days that has everything you need to run Win 7 or Win 8.
