    I would also give up on WOL, its kinda of a pain in the ***. For normal networked PC's it works fine, but troublesome in a car. For WOL a specific "wake-up" packet needs to be sent, as far as i know there is no simple way to electronically send such a signal

    I think you should just take it apart anyway...

    ive been looking to do the same thing with my laptop, ide like to find out more about the WOR option with the modem b/c ripping apart and soldering on my laptop isnt something i want done. besides im lazy and i want it to just come on without pushing any buttons.

    I would just get a docking station and mod the dock instead.
    That way, you can use the laptop while not in the car.

    sure...the easy way, but with a docking station you still need to wire in a button and press it...

    The Inspiron 1300 doesn't have a dociking station with a power button. Your only option is hack it apart.

    There's some guy on here that was able to get WOL working with some Linksys router so there might be hope.

    or install a wake-on-usb program? BIOS only supports that if it's WinMedCenter
