I have searched. How do I start up this laptop.
I have everything I need for my carputer.
I'm using a laptop and I had HOPED there was a port replicator made for it that would allow me to tap into its power button. There is not.
I need to be able to turn on my laptop from inside the car without having to press the power button. I can't open up the laptop to solder on the button points because the laptop isn't mine.
I've searched for a wake on lan option but couldn't really find a way to trigger a packet through a hardware device. The laptop does support this option though.
Am I completely out of luck?
I would love to be able to power on my inverter with a switch and have the latop sense A/C power and turn on.
The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A15-S1292. The inverter is a 400W from Best Buy.
Please help me! I feel like I've hit a wall here and am very frustrated.
