here is my situation: I have an Aspire A315-41 that I use with an external monitor and an external wired keyboard. The laptop is closed and positioned below the monitor stand. I want to specify that I googled for 2-3 days before posting this question, but I didn't find any possible solution.
So basically what I'd want to do is to power on the pc from a state that can be the standard shutdown or an hibernation (NOT sleep nor hybrid sleep), without pulling out the laptop, opening it and press the power button. I tried every possible configuration to wake the system pressing a key with the external keyboard (which would have been the best solution), but none worked: the usb ports are powered off, so hitting any key does nothing. I think I'll have to stand to the idea that this is just not possible.
Do you guys have any ideas on how to achieve this?
P.S. I'd want to avoid to sleep the system because I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that keeping the RAM used for all the time and never completely shutdown the laptop isn't too good...
