Default Any apps to auto boot/shut down? Need help...

Whats up XDA.
So I have a galaxy tab sch-i800 running on cyanogenmod 9. I plan to fit my tablet into the dashboard of my car, I have everything worked out except how I'm going to turn it on and off. since I won't be able to access the power button I need a way for it to power on/off by its self, that way its not occasionally dead when I start my car.

At first I planed to use tasker to turn the tablet on when plugged in (or when I start my car, it turns on). and then turn off after an hour of inactivity (or an hour after I've turned off my car).

But now that I'm looking at tasker it won't let me use the command "turn on" (even though I'm rooted) and I don't see a turn off command.

Is there any apps out there that can help do exactly what I want?

I have noticed that 4.2+ automatically boots when it is plugged in, I'm on 4.0, would upgrading screw up cyanogenmod?

Thanks!

To Switch ON
I think you may have to rewrite the Bootloader code to switch ON the Tab when Charging starts instead on that Large Green Battery Animation. Search it ..
Hint : I have seen it(the code) somewhere while I was looking for OTG in P1000.

To Switch OFF
Try these apps and do post their results

What you hope to accomplish with it turning on from a full power off is not possible without rewriting the bootloader or somehow rewriting the power switch (open the tab, solder wires to the switch terminals, and use an external relay or transistor to short the wires).
