How to turn on the laptop without a power button?

Most laptop manufacturers have some settings in bios to turn on a laptop in different ways inside Power Management settings

like AC Behaviour, Auto on time, USB Wake Support, and Wake on LAN these options can be changed or different on the bases of laptop brands.

AC Behavior: This option will turn on the laptop by just connecting the power cable to your laptop.

Auto on time: In this option, you will get separate times for each day so after setting the time it will turn on the laptop at that particular scheduled time

But I tried it it did not work for my Dell Laptop.

USB Wake Support: This option allows you to enable USB devices to wake the system from standby.

Wake on LAN: This option allows the computer to power up from the off state when triggered by a special LAN signal.

Wake-up from the standby state is unaffected by the setting and must be enabled in the operating system.

This feature only works when the laptop is connected to AC.

STEP 1: Turn on your laptop and press the BIOS key of your computer as shown in the image below. (I have dell so I will press F2 Key to boot into bios)

After applying system will restart now after restart you have to shut down your laptop and remove the power cable.
