99% of the time, I use my MBP as a desktop with an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. The current setup does not allow me to have the built in display open next to the external monitor due to lack of room. I keep the laptop on the BookArc stand and slide it behind the monitor. This works fine when I put the laptop to sleep since hitting any key on the external keyboard wakes the computer. But I shut the laptop down a few nights a week and in order to turn it back on I have to pull the laptop out of the stand, open it and hit the power button before shutting the lid and putting it back. I'm curious if anyone has thought of a way to power the laptop on without opening the lid. I don't have high hopes for a good solution, but I figured I'd ask anyway.
