Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

"Up ad running" means "currently turned on", not "not broken"!!!
We are not saying the computer is broken, we are saying it's turned off!
When it's turned off, not broken, there's no program running at all that can possibly detect keystrokes.
Good luck with this....we've only told the OP the same thing 4 times so far, and they're still missing it. Doesn't seem to understand it's kind of like asking "I've got a lamp that's unplugged....what kind of bulb can I put in it, so it lights up?"
And do you have any idea what they mean by "ribbon falls out of the gate"??
As I understood, the laptop was dropped and the internal connection to the power button is damaged and comes loose over time.
That's what I thought too, except the OP keeps going on about how the laptop is in perfect shape, and has been repaired, which is confusing. If it's been fixed, you wouldn't need to do anything else...if not, the OP's been told to get the laptop repaired, since there's no way to do what they want. But they persist in asking. Oh well....
mtk358 understands, the OP never mentioned the computer was in perfect shape, it is running perfectly now! ... moreover as long as the ribbon stays in the gate, in most likely will come on every time! i most likely will not have to do anything else, i know that, but the ribbon came out ten times from the gate.
that is why i ask my original question?
but sofware and hardware can burn electical connection into programable logic chips! and electircity will flow, now in my HP maybe their may be just one way to turn on my computer! I did not know so I asked?
so from post one, i knew exactly what i was asking and still do?
in regard to the ribbon, and the gate, take the battery out of a HP remove the three phillips head screws! they pull the keyboard to the housing! remove the keyboard! with you eyes follow the power button ribbon it will like the yellow brick road lead to not OZ, but the gate!
ben franklin is a perfect example, they told him you could not harness electicity? now flying a kite in the rain, while not the best idea in the world, at the end of the day, some electricity did come down the kite string! cloud to ground was not the only way!
but sofware and hardware can burn electical connection into programable logic chips! and electircity will flow
Nothing is further from the truth.
Software cannot change the way the computer works, it just tells it what to do.

do u understand?
He does it by bypassing the key and touching the wires together manually. It's not like he magically starts the car by turning the steering wheel or something.
It's the equivalent of you opening the laptop and shorting together the wires that go to the power switch.
Basically, your request is like asking "how to make my toaster work without it being plugged in?"
When the computer is off, it isn't working. It's a circuit that fetches instructions and executes them, if the power supply provides power to it. How to you expect it to work without power? The power button doesn't doesn't touch the CPU and turns on the power supply, in case you're wondering.
