How to turn on a laptop without the power button

Envy 17t-1000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 I am a handicap veteran who has no use of my arms or hands. I have a working HP  envy laptop. This may sound crazy, but, I was wondering if there was a way to be able to turn on my laptop without having to have someone else  press the power button. My power button is not broken. It works just fine. I would just like to be able to turn on my  laptop all by myself. I have been searching the Internet for solutions to this question. All I have found, is basically how to fix a broken power button. I was just wondering if this is a possibility. I currently have a head tracking system as well as Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Both have allowed me to do everything on my  laptop with the exception of powering   it on. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you.
