A solution requiring no hardware modifications inside of the PC case
might be preferred. He could get the 5V from one of the ports.
Another solution would be to play a DTMF sound (if this PC has a sound card).
A simple DTMF decoder could than turn on the monitor.
You could even setup windows to play that particular DTMF (wav) upon bootup.
