Detailed description:


I use a Zenbook Flip UX363 laptop. The laptop has an external power button on the side of the case that can be accessed without opening the lid of the laptop (i.e., the power button is not a keyboard key). I often use the laptop connected to an external monitor (over a Thunderbolt cable), and for that reason it would be very practical to turn on the laptop from the external power button without opening the lid. However, I have only been able to turn on laptop from the external power if the lid is open (if the lid is closed, the laptop does not power on from the external button). I have selected “Do nothing” in the “When I close the lid” setting in the power settings (both while “On battery” and while “Plugged in”). 

Is it possible to turn on the laptop from the external power button while the lid remains closed if e.g. some setting is changed?
