I think BIOS has options for turning on by USB or some other devices.

You could attach some kind of one button keyboard and from Windows to make ONLY it wake the pc.
Device manager has that Option in the device Properties --> Power Management --> Allow this device to wake...

EDIT: If you want to turn it from being completely shut (Non-Sleep) then I don't think you can.
