PC Wakeup from Keyboard detect

I think it varies. Some motherboards look for a specific key IIRC. If you care about making a nice neat product in the thousands, there are better ways, but if you're just making one, then obtain a $2(us) new keyboard, rip off the membrane, and connect the two appropriate tracks on the PCB at the right time.

In reference to a PC computer ACPI(Advanced Configuration & Power Interface) :

Does anyone know how the PC ACPI detects a wake up signal from a keyboard?

Does the PC look for exact serial data or just any pulses on the CLOCK and DATA lines?

I want to simulate a wake up - and I wonder if I need a micro to send real CLOCK and DATA packets or just changes in state?

Any pointers would be appreciated

Any other pointers to news groups would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
