    Can't power on keyboard anymore on Z170I

    Hello,

    I've done an upgrade of my BIOS (0403 to 3805) (yeah it's a gap) on my Z170I Pro gaming.
    It works good except that I'm now unable to power my computer on by keyboard or by my MCE remote with USB IR Dongle.

    USB 3.1 Power charging > Enabled
    Erp Ready > Disabled

    The only thing that changed is that the option XHCI-Handoff under USB Configuration, was replaced by USB Keyboard and Mouse Simulator.

    When the power is off, I see that my keyboard is on.
    When I press a button on my MCE remote, I see a led activity on the IR dongle.
    But nothing happen.

    I tryed to downgrade to 0403 but it loop on EZ flash asking me to put the 0403 file.cap. But this one didn't work. I was able to put the 3805 instead.

    Is anybody have the same issue?

    It finally works with a new BIOS chip with the 0403 version.
    XHCI-Handoff is up again.
    So yes new version of the BIOS kill the possibility to power on by a usb device.

    Obligated to install a BIOS of 2015 to have a great option, shame on Asus.
