Hardware for computer if it's stolen...

My previous laptop was stolen and I'd like to protect my new one.



It's encrypted and password protected.



Here is my question.



Is there hardware or software that can track the computer's whereabouts if it is not turned on?



I know software like lojack can track it if it's on, but what if it's stolen and not powered on?



Any thoughts?




not that I'm aware of. It sounds like you want a GPS installed with your laptop.

Software is what's available, and even then it only works when the computer is connected to an internet connection. I know there used to be some that worked even if the computer was formated, do a google search and I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for in software form
