took a look at the IT8772F data sheet (well, 8712, closest I could find:
) and it seems that there's no
setting of the PCR1/2 registers that will force #PSON high when AC power is applied -
it's always conditional on the previous system power state.
I'd be happy for someone else to take a look and tell me I'm misreading though :)

Haswell/Lynxpoint) power on when AC power connected regardless of the previous power
state. Currently, the box will power on if AC power is lost and the device was powered
on, but not if powered off. I have a use case where it would be convenient to be able to
power on the boxes by toggling AC power (eg, the boxes are not within physical reach). I
modified the CMOS default setting for 'power_on_after_fail' to be enabled and
verified its status with nvramtool. I also tried modifying lpc.c/smihandler.c in the
southbridge code to force MAINBOARD_POWER_ON (rather than MAINBOARD_POWER_KEEP) in all
cases, to no avail.

it8772f_ac_resume_southbridge() which *should* be making the southbridge the one
responsible for the power behavior when AC is applied, but as a first test you could try
removing that call to see if the default SuperIO behavior is closer to what you want.
Hi Duncan, I tried removing the call as suggested, but it didn't change the behavior
at all. Any thoughts as to where to look next?
