I haven't recieved my LP yet, but check your Bios. Otherwise maybe you can use the arduino side to send power up to to Windows or even connect the arduino side (gpio) to the power button

I checked the BIOS settings and could not find anything that looks like an auto start. For my use case this is very annoying, and beside the fact that my LP seems broken (see other thread "BIOS jumper" - I bricked my board when I checked the BIOS for this auto start feature!) the probably missing "auto start feature of LP will stop my project!
@Boring: Arduino, GPIO, bla -pls come back if you have a board and you know which of your suggested options will work ;-)

Hi fsommer1968,

Sorry to hear your LP is bricked. Unfortunately It will take some time for my to receive my LP due to the my pledge and extra's. but as soon as I have one I will figure it out, that will be June at the earliest :( . Hopefully someone else will figure it out before that time.

+1, I too would like a solution that does not involve using yet another microprocessor or building a logic gate circuit tied to the button and LED of the LP.
