    docking station startup

    I have a targus universal port replicator, and a 2003 Toshiba satellite A25-S207 laptop. Is there any way to modify the port replicator to turn on the laptop? Is there anyway to use the port replicator as a power switch for the laptop? The laptop will be in the trunk, and the laptop has a power switch directly wired to the motherboard, so soldering a switch would be difficult for me. Any suggestions?

    No, no and look into a device to simulate WOL or WOR.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I suggest getting the port replicator from Toshiba itself - since they come with a power button - and simply wire the button to whereever you wanna put it, ie, by the driver.

    You didn't mention if the Targus port replicator has a power switch or not. I am assuming it doesnt which is why I suggest getting the toshiba port rep.

    Yup. No way. All universal port replicators don't have a power switch. Even if they did, you'd have to solder into that switch anyway.

    BTW, start doing some searching, dude. You've been asking a lot of these annoying noobish questions.

    Do you think we're just yanking your chain or something?
    Yes, I'm certain. I wouldn't say it if I wasn't.

    Now, I could be wrong. If I am, I'll admit it.

    Some people just say no without really considering the question...I just wanted other people's opinions also.

    You didn't say that. You asked if I was sure. Huge difference.

    You are forgiven....errrr, you know what. You are not forgiven. Think before you post, and you will avoid this problem.
