Hi Y'all,
Been doing a bit of research on how I can remotely shut down or disable my Laptop computer if it gets stolen or something else happens (kinda like what a de-mobiliser in a car does). My search led me to the term 'Kill Switch' which happens to be a means of remotely disabling a computer if it gets stolen or happens to be in certain pre-defined undesirable conditions/situations. I'm thinking, just how can I use this on my laptop? Could there be other means of remotely disabling my computer if I want to? Any help on answering these questions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Pals...
