Windows 7: Setting the PC to turn on by itself every day or week?

Setting the PC to turn on by itself every day or week?

I'm going to be out of town and using a remote control access program to use my computer. I'm wondering if there's a way to set my computer's power settings to turn on automatically every now and then since I won't have direct access to the physical computer to turn it back on, in case it crashes, or the power goes out. I only see settings to auto-shutdown or sleep the computer at certain times, no turn on options.

Don't know what motherboard you have so I don't know if it's supported by your current system.

I'm not sure, is there a way I can check my mobo or just check myself if I can do the turn on feature?

It might help if you filled in your system specs. Otherwise, check your manual, or rummage through your BIOS settings. Perhaps under Advanced Settings.

yeah , if you aren't afraid to dig into your ram it should be a clearly labeled setting if it has it. Just look for the wake on lan
