I saw a video of someone's setup on YouTube. This caught my attention:

So, I was wondering if that person removes the macbook from the stand each time they want to turn it on.

Generally, is there a way to turn a macbook on without opening its lid? I always use Bluetooth keyboards and I would like it if there's a way to turn on a macbook without opening its lid.

Hello,

I don't know of any way to power on a MacBook when it is powered off and the lid is closed. The power button is the only way.

However, you can sleep it in closed lid mode and wake it with a wired/Bluetooth mouse/keybaord, or using Apple Remote Desktop if it is connected via Ethernet. I have several Macs that run in closed lid mode/headless.
