Schedule to wake up or turn on?

Hi,

How can you schedule your Windows 7 to wake up or turn on on a specific time.

eg. my IDM starts work at 1am. i sleep before 12. I dont want to waste energy to keep my computer fully on this whole hour (electricity is expensive here).

I've tried to schedule it, but it keeps failing. I dont know why.

What can i do. Its very important for me. Thanks.

Both of my ASUS motherboards have a BIOS option to turn the PC on at a set time. Its under power options. I have my PC set to turn on at 8 AM every morning. My coffee machine starts at 7:50 AM.

If the PC is off, or in sleep mode only the BIOS can turn it back on. If the PC is off, Windows isn't even running, if windows isn't running no programs are running. Same deal with sleep mode, Windows isn't running it's frozen. Only a hardware interrupt can trigger the BIOS to wake it up.

If this is the case, why is there an option in the scheduled tasks that you can "wake the computer" to run the task?
