Windows 7: Is total projector control possible through a port

Is total projector control possible through a port

Not sure if this is in the right place since it is both a possible software (script needed) and hardware (overhead projector) problem. Our church used to use the remote to power the projector on and off. The remote tore up and instead of a replacement, I'd like to be able to turn the overhead projector on and off by using the laptop in the media booth. The laptop is connected to the projector with VGA. I know with windows xp it was possible but can't figure out how to do it with windows 7. Is it possible to have a short script entered in cmd prompt that will do it? Do I need an adapter or will the VGA cable work? any help will be appreciated
