HDMI to TV

I have an AOC TV and it's connected to my Pc via HDMI everything looks great at 1080p.
I know it's not a Monitor, so it won't wake up when inactive, here lies the question ¿How to turn on the TV when connected via HDMI without pressing any button?

I have a ps3 via HDMI to my TV when I press the PS button the TV turns on by itself, well I'm digressing.

¿Some way to do this without buying a Monitor?

By the way, my Tv has VGA and HDMI x2 and I'm using on board video HD4250 if that helps.

Thank you :D

Something I forget to say, If the Tv is on and you turn on the Pc says no signal unless you move the mouse a lot, or type something in the keyboard.
I have to turn on the Pc first then the Tv.

    No not really, it's just very annoying to turn the TV every time you use the PC. Sometimes it keeps getting no signal and I have to turn of and on the TV.

    I think that may be a problem on the TV's end...AOC are cheaper tvs....unfortunatly there is not really anything you can do about remotely turning it on or off..just have the remote handy...thats what I do for my gaming setup

    I thought the HDMI cable was the problem or something like that. Guess i'll buy a monitor later.
