I want to set up dual monitors on my desk, and store my laptop under the desk (I already use a different keyboard/mouse). But to turn on the laptop you have to open it to access the power button. Is there a way to set it up to remotely turn on (I don't really want it permanently sleeping).

It's an Asus N73J

Thanks in advance.

Actually, kind of. Set the lid to not power off or go to sleep when closed. Turn it on and wire everything up to the monitors. Turn Wake on Keyboard (or mouse) on. Put it to sleep from windows and you can wake it back up without opening it.
