I have a file folder holder from work (metal) where I stack the family computers as they charge. This is a neat idea. I tend to use the monitor on the laptops though

If you have a dock that allows it. My doc is connected through USB c and turning on the doc turns on the laptop so this stand will work for me.

I use the Wake on LAN feature on my laptop in combination with https://github.com/basildane/WakeOnLAN. There is probably a way to send the WOL magic packet from your phone via an app if you don't have another computer to send it from.

You may need to change the power options on your laptop to change how it behaves when the lid is closed.

I read that opening the lid will help the laptop to cool down. So what I did is just open a little space to allow my finger to click the power-up button.

C-states / hybrid sleep / Wake timers have cost me at least two Dell XPS motherboards. No longer messing with any wake timers on Windows operating systems, although in a well ventilated stand it's unlikely it'll overheat and burn out.

Wrong. Even my 2014 Macbook pro can be turned on remotely with the lid closed. You need an ethernet cable connected to it to make use of the Wake on LAN feature. If you look at the power options in you will see "Wake for network access" option.

For my windows laptop I turn it off and on without touching it, and the lid is closed.

My mac and monitor setup is connected to a power strip. When I turn on the power, the laptop automatically turns on and connects to my keyboard and mouse. There's no need to open the lid at all.

The question is, does all laptop have the Wake on LAN feature? If not then its YMMV.

To make the Wake on LAN feature work, you need to execute a command from another computer within the same network .

Do you remember which one you 3D printed? Can you link to it on Thingiverse?
