I know there has been millions have threads on turning on a laptop, and I have probably read alot of them. I don't want to mess with wake on lan, wake on ring, I dont have UPS power on resume for my laptop, and I cant just solder on an external swith because the button manually presses down on a mechanism instead of an electical signal through a wire.
The laptop is about 4 years old, it is a toshiba satellite A25-S207. What is the simplest method for me to turn of my laptop in the car? I am sick of getting out and pressing the button in my trunk every day. Please dont just tell me to . I just need some help, (BTW im only 16).
Pictures would be helpful, but they are probably no different then any other laptop.
Of course, if you are unwilling to use WOL, WOR, etc.., and your laoptop is "mechanical" as you state, then you can't use the laptop. Get something else.

I don't want to mess with this..
I don't have that..
I can't do something else..
Don't tell me to search..
I just need help..
I recommend a long pole....but not to push the on/off button with!!! ;-)

if you really can't mess with the switch (wimp), a cable like a gastank release could be rigged, (bicycle cables) or a small electrical solinoid could be rigged even, but cleanest is to just go to the board...

got a question do the length of the cables matter... like will it lose signal after so far?
