Power on laptop when lid closed

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Laptop 15t-eg000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Community. I just got my HP Pavilion Laptop 15t-eg000 and I'm trying to set it up in my home office. Its connected to a Aukey 12-1 hub with 2 monitors and wireless Keyboard and mouse and i leave the laptop closed. Everything is working fine but when the laptop goes in sleep or hibernate mode (I dont want to disable these) I have to open the lid to power the laptop and sometime I need to unplug the USB-C hub to get it powered on and the external monitors working. All of the Windows 10 power setting are setup based off this (https://www.howtogeek.com/412876/how-to-keep-your-laptop-on-with-the-lid-closed-on-windows-10/) link. The main question is how can i power up or wake the laptop when the lid is closed. Is there a better docking station or other way to power it up? Thank You

No, you have to open the lid, power your machine and close - you can do that in 10 secobds
