Hello. I have an older laptop (looks like it's been through a war) I like to use occasionally. The hinges to open and close it broke so i have to leave it open. A while back the power button stopped working so i removed the cover and was able to boot the computer up by touching the board underneath where the power button was. This now has also stopped working. Do you have any suggestions on how I can boot the system up with bypassing the power button? If so, once i get this thing started what can i do so this maching stays running and doesn't shut down?

Thanks for the help.
