Turn on your computer for a convenient time automatically
Go to your Computer Setup (press Del when your PC is loading).
Go to “Power Management Setup” and enable “ PWron/Resume by alarm” and set date alarm and time alarm and then press F10 to save your change and turn off your pc.
On specified date and time, your pc will turn on

Great tip for maintance...


I can turn my pc 1 hour before waking up, and with windows task program a defraction of both my HD's and get it done at least once a week...

And then turn it off when i wake up to get ready to go!

Wow, even after years of using computers inside and out, you can learn something new. Very useful, as i've always wanted to be able to do this, but I guess I was too lazy to actually find a way. Thanks now I can set up my comp to be an overpriced alarm clock :)

But in all seriousness it'll definitly be handy in doing maintence while Im either asleep or away.

For those of you using a mac, there is a similar way to turn on your computer. Hey, we all need a wake up call now and again, right?

Go to the little blue Apple in the upper left hand corner and choose System Preferences. Go to Hardware-->Energy Saver and select it. Take a look at your choices under "Schedule" and you see where you can have your mac boot up and shut down.

Under "Options" make sure you select "restart automatically after a power failure" just in case.

ChicGhic, see! I told you that you'd learn something new here.

soleimanian, thanks for starting this thread. Many don't use the features that come with their computers. I don't use the wake up feature myself, but maybe I should try it out.

Good tip!

But I suppose it would be different for each computer.

Depending on your BIOS. DELL, Compaq, Gateway, etc. all have different BIOS.

thanks for the tips :P. But I was wondering does the computer have to be in stand by to be turned on, or does it even work when it's completely shut down?

I'll give the tip a try now :D.

I've got an Asus A78XVM something motherboard with nvidia geforce4 chipset. There is an option called RTC alarm, i think that's it, but it isn't working. I tried it out, putting one minute ahead and saving it and switching it off. But it didn't switch on. Any ideas?

But, also you can turn on your computer,true the web, or the LAN, it is so easy, if you have a compatible board and a good LAN Card, you can turn your computer, from any PC in the world. It's called Wape up on lan, no all the computer support this, but if you have one, I think that you should test! Have fun

Just one question for people knowing this "power management setup" and other things in the bios. I need no know something, maybe you could help me.
Sometimes, when I help a friend installing win2k pro, at shudown the PC (IBM Aptiva for instance) does not powerdown, it shows a screen saying "you may now safely powerdown your computer). And of course the front pannel "power" button makes a reboot.
Is this normal ? Going in the bios (here it's F1 or F2) and saying "reset all to factory settings" gives no improvement.
Generally, what is the trick to make the computer power down when sutting down with Microsoft Windows 2k pro or 2k server ?

This had something to do with Advance Powermanagement. Check if it installed as an ACPI computer (you can see this in the device management (or what it's called in english) under 'computer'.
Gonna reboot to see what BIOS settings you can change :D

Ok, didn't realy find an option :D .

But those are the other options to turn on your computer :D :
-password (some letters and numbers, your choise)
-Hot KEY (something like ctrl-F1)
-Mouse left or right
-Any Key
-Button only (only the button, hmm, clever explanation :D )
-Keyboard 98 (absolutely no idea, maybe the windows button on the keyboard ?)

Other options:
-Wake by PME# of PCI (some PCI device can turn you pc on)
-Wake op by Ring (or this is WOL or this is Wake on Modem)
-Wake by alarm (what this topic is about)
