Fred, Long live the LangaList Plus! (:->)
I have frequently seen system utilities that allow to power off a computer at a specified time of the day, but I have yet to see anything that can do the contrary: Power on and boot up a computer automatically.
I have a standalone PC running Windows 2000 and would like to do just that! I figure that if some utilities can power off a PC, maybe the other way around is also possible. Is it feasible, or am I just dreaming?
Thanks and best regards.— Tiziano Bianchi
PCs have a built-in "real-time clock" ("RTC") that operates continuously: Even when the PC is turned off, the clock continues to run, powered by a small, usually coin-type cell or battery. The RTC is often part of the BIOS, or "Basic Input/Output System;" the lowest-level portion of your PC that lets it wake up and start to operate before the OS loads.
