There's something wrong for sure, keyboard power isn't dependent on a floppy drive being present or not. If someone has routed a cable from the keyboard connector to the floppy drive then you can safely reconnect it to the 7 pin connector at its appropriate place or pick up +5 V from most of the logic chips' Vcc or +5 V connection.
