    Toshiba Satellite laptop, L55 series, running W10 Anniversary. I don't have this problem yet, but know from past experience that it can happen. I think I read somewhere that you can power up the dead machine by pressing one of the keys (I think it's the zero key) at the same time a pressing the power button. Is that correct? Thanks..Ed

    OK, welcome to the forum, I invite you to register to follow up the questions and answers in a more confortable way.

    Right now I don't know if what you say is possibly, the only two methods I know to do that is Hot wiring the power button and enabling the Wake on Lan option, beside that is beyond my knowledge.

    But I think it's because repairing a button is pretty easy, most of the laptops also has the power button with some few other buttons or leds in a separated small and kind of cheap board.
