remote power / laptop

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


We need to be able to power the laptop (DELL Latitude) externally, by
clicking on some switch on the outside panel.

Let me explain:  The laptop is used to control the internal devices.
The goal is to somehow bring out the power switch to the outside of
the device so that the user can switch the power to the entire system,
including the notebook, with one switch.

I have searched everywhere but can't find any solid solution.  I am
thinking of using the expansion port, I found the pin outs, but can't
figure out what pins will simulate the power-switch press.
