You will have to look at the power options in the bios. Or even the manual. Many boards have an option to set what the power button does, what to do after a power falure and to boot on a keyboard key or a mouse click. Som boards support USB some don't.

I had an old gigabyte board that you could power on with a password. You basically typed the password on the keyboard when the computer was in the off state and it would boot.

Some boards have a jumper to enable other boot methods or to leave USB on when the computer is powered off. Most boards that is all handled in the bios now though.
