Are keyboard buttons considered momentary contact switches?

The Raspberry Pi Standby Switch project says "any normally open momentary contact pushbutton will work".  I happen to have a mechanical key switch from an old computer keyboard.  Are key switches considered the right kind of switch for this project?

Should work; keyboard keys are normally open momentary pushbuttons.

Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.
