Have you tried opening Google+ or Gmail on your desktop (in Chrome)?

You should be able to set the phone to alert (ring / flash / etc) when you get a text via SMS or via Google+ Hangout.

I've been using Google+ and Hangouts in GMail already and this is the reason I've come to this.  I'll turn off my phone and then until I turn my phone back on, I don't get anymore texts.

There is no way to receive text messages from your cell phone carrier to your hangouts unless your phone is turned on.
