How can I set the BIOS to boot my computer at a specific time ?
Hello, more links for you:
You could use freeware WakeupOnStandby. For this software to work your computer has to be in sleep or hibernation mode:
it depends upon your BIOS config as to what options do you have in it .
try this .
Restart your computer and enter the BIOS setup when prompted by the start-up screenUse the arrow keys to navigate to the "Power Management" settings.Hit the Enter key to view all of the power-management optionsUse the arrow keys to move down to the "Date" option, and type in the day on which you want your computer to start upUse the arrow keys to move down to the "Time" option, and enter the exact time at which you want the computer to boot up.
note -- its only possible if the BIOS has these options !
other than that , i dont think thats exactly possible .
only if you can mod your BIOS or write a new BIOS for your system ( which isnt an easy job ) , can you have such an option .
other than that there are options in certain BIOS's to auto boot or auto restart under certain conditions , but not on specific time .
if you want to auto start your PC , why bother going into BIOS .
do it an easy way .
schedule a task ;
Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Scheduled Tasks.
Double-click the "Add Scheduled Task" icon to launch the Scheduled Task
Wizard, and click Next. Select a program you'd like to run when your
system wakes up (or u can simply select explorer.exe if u have no
choice), and schedule the task. On the wizard's last page, check "Open advanced properties for this task when I click Finish" before clicking Finish.
In the resulting Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab, check Wake the computer to run this task, and click OK.
or use a third part app like - Auto Power ON http://www.lifsoft.com/
