well, i finally got one. A keyboard with a PowerButton. It's PS/2 and It is also a multimedia keyboard. Problem is, i was wondering if there were any hacks to get the multimedia (or extra keys) to work on my iBook (before you say anything, i am using a PS/2 -> USB adapter) Anyone know of any software or instructions on how to do this?

um... maybe Microsoft...

Try downloading the Microsoft keyboard drivers for OSX from the MS site, if your lucky the keys will output the same codes as a MS keyboard and youll be able to use them without remapping. VOL up and down and mute should work right out of the box though.

MS Intellitype = No worky

tried it, didn't work. This is not a priority, so it will stick to my PC (which is what i bought it for. And only for $10 too!). Oh well. If anyone has any other ideas, my ears are open.
