    Automatic Power On (XP Pro)

    I set up a very basic backup routine with Karen's Replicator. It does incremental backups from the server machine to another machine. I also programmed taks so as to have Windows shut down when the backup is done.
    For the backup to take place, it is necessary that the workstations don't *get* shut down (ie, they are meant to be left running). However, very frequently users will forget and shut them down. To prevent them from involuntarily thwarting our backup routine, is there any way I can program a task for the workstations to automatically power on at a predefined time?

    Thank you

    Thanks Al!! I think MarJ's solutions will do <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>. I'll post again in case they wouldn't.
