    I am answering your question, taking into account that you have not yet lost your laptop and that you have complete admin access to it.
    All you need to do is to go this website "http://preyproject.com/" and install their application. Even if you do not pay (and I bet you won't have to!) the security features they provide are very much helpful in tracking a lost laptop. I have tested it myself and just in case you need one for your phone, then install their phone app too !!
    Their tag line:
    "Prey lets you keep track of your laptop, phone and tablet whenever stolen or missing -- easily and all in one place. It's lightweight, open source software that gives you full and remote control, 24/7."
