don't know if this is the right forum for my question, but here goes.
Is it possible to use windows schedule to force my pc to start on a specific time?
I mean: from switched off status, to power up, open, login with my account.
Can this be accomblished with the win schedule? Or perhaps with some other application?
Thanks for any info on this.
I can't see how Wake on Lan could help me in this... and i don't seem to have this function on my Bios.
So is there anything else that could help me? Or should i leave the pc on stand by?
Windows cannot instigate a Wake on LAN on itself. In other words, it can't power itself on. That's the problem you're going to run into if your BIOS doesn't support WoL.
Leaving the machine on and using Window's Scheduled Tasks sounds like it would be your best alternative. You could write a batch file to shut the system down after the tasks are run.
