    Won't start install till summer but in the mean time I'll be keeping an eye on this tread.
    ^NOT TRUE^

    As was stated previously in this thread

    I found a possible solution... You can change the bios settings to turn the tablet on whenever it sees power. I'll try it out sometime this week and report back.

    EDIT: This worked perfectly. Unlock your bootloader and type "fastboot oem off-mode-charge 0". Now, even if the tablet is completely turned off, when you apply power it automatically boots to the home screen. No power button needed ever again.
    I have also used this solution to automatically turn on my nexus 7 once the tablet receives power.

    You can look for custom roms and kernels that incorporate knock2awake or swipe2awake

    you can check ebay, I have found 30000 mah batteries with usb in and usb out, one side you plug in a charger , other side you plug in the tablet, then you can configure tasker to turn on the screen/gps/wifi etc etc when your phone is detected through bluetooth
