On one of my PC's I can power up at the touch of my spacebar instead of
pressing the power button on my CPU. However I can't seem to remember how to
do this. Can someone please help

That would be a function of your hardware - unless you have it in
hibernation and not actually powered off.

Hibernation *is* powered off.
Standby will unsuspend at a keyboard input.

Yes - Hibernation is a saved state power-down.. Where Windows simply
restarts in the "last saved" state.
However, coming out of hibernation with a keyboard key-press is a function
of the hardware - not Windows XP.

(For example (extreme), if you have a mechanical power switch - that
keypress will do nothing to power on your system..)
