nikorr, thanks for replying to my post, I appreciate your time and input. My concern is that the Gateway FX6801 motherboard is propriatary, the FP1 connector has no labels, and from the factory, the only connector attached to it was the 2-wire power switch (all other front panel functions are fed from the USB connectors on the motherboard and go up to an enclosure at the front-top of the case.) UPDATE: I just took a chance, and jumped the 2nd set of pins (from the right), and it works; problem solved. Thanks very much, drdelp

The 2-wire power connector attaches to the white header on the lower edge of the motherboard (about 1 inch from the lower right corner); It is attached to the 2nd pair of pins from the right of the header, closest to the edge of the MB; see image
