Does anyone know of a way to start my laptop computer with a double click? I have it mounted in my pick-up, and have an external monitor, RF Keyboard and mouse. It is quite a bit of a pain to dig it out and open it everymorning just to push a button.

I do not think this is possible. The drivers for wireless keyboard do not install until the computer boots. You may be able o power down into "Hibernation Mode". In hibernation it would be as simple as a key stroke or combination of key strokes.

I think the hibernation option is your only possible route as the power to the wireless keyboard and mouse will not be on if it is in standby. also I am not sure if there would be a way even if they were connected. I am sure that it is only looking for the power button to be pressed.

Not sure if it will work in hibernation mode but you could consider a "Touch Screen" addon device.

My desktop (with wired keyboard and mouse) has a feature through the BIOS to turn on from a keyboard input (along with boot on LAN, etc.) Take a gander at you BIOS menus to see if it is an option.
