Automatic Boot?

Hi guys

I am wondering is there a way to have an automatic boot process run?

Example: I work and get home at around 5:30-6:00 PM, I would like my PC to boot at 5:00 PM.

If there is a way to do it great, if there isnt, no great loss.

Thanks

Hi iroro,

You may enable the 'Auto-Start at a specific time' feature in your system only if it is supported by the computer 'BIOS'.

To explore that possibility, you may use the following steps:
- Boot up your computer and enter the BIOS setup (Access to BIOS is different with different computers; Del or F2 key is generally used)
- Navigate to 'Power Options' > If your 'computer's BIOS' supports it, there should be a function for automatically starting up your computer at a certain time of day (Sometimes called 'Resume by Alarm') > Enable that setting and 'set the time' you want your computer to start every day > Save and Exit the 'BIOS' > The computer should start following that schedule

Hope this helps. Do reply if you have any further questions; would be glad to assist.

Sorry, I forgot to reply
Theoretically, messing with the bios could this mess up my computer and cause all sorts of issues?

Hi iroro,

'System BIOS' contains instructions to initialze and test the system hardware components; also loads the operating system. Even a small change in the 'BIOS' may lead to a tremendous change in computer behavior. It may also cause issues if the changes made, are based on incorrect information or incomplete understanding.

'Windows Operating System' may not allow the system to 'auto-resume' itself at a specific time; only 'BIOS' may allow it, if designed to do so.
