Default finger print reader

Can you use this finger print reader to start your pc instead of pressing the button?

i think it would be kinda cool if it turnded on by recognising your print, like some new cars do instead of a key, so not just anyone could start ya pc, thats would be pretty cool

i have the microsoft one. got it at officedepot for 40 bucks. its awesome. u can use it to sign into windows and sign into any forums or website. the downside is that is only works with IE not firefox (because its made by microsoft)
