TURN ON AND/OR TURN OFF COMPUTER

23 posts in this topic

I have been searching. I have a string of au3 files that run one after the other via a bat file.

I would like to add an au3 file that turns on my computer as the first step in the bat file. And, I would like to add an au3 file to the end of this bat file that turns off my computer.

Does anyone have an au3 file that does either of these?

Can either of these (turn on PC or turn off PC) be done with AutoIt?

Thanks for the help!!

When you do figure it out, could you post the one that you click on to turn on your computer? That sounds amazing! :P

Guess I was not clear. I do not have and am looking for an au3 file that turns on my PC. I am also looking for an au3 file or code example for turning off my PC. I want to add these 2 au3 files to the front and end of my batch file.

I don't think I was clear either. If your computer is off, you can't run any batch scripts on it - because it's off.

Now, are you saying that you want to turn it on from another computer? That's only possible IF the other computer is on the same network subnet, AND your computer's network card supports Wake On Lan.

To turn off the computer try:

Run(@ComSpec & " /c shutdown -t now", "", @SW_HIDE)

Like lod3n said, kinda hard to write a script to turn your computer on when the computer isn't already on to run the script. I beleive theres a program called Magic Packet or something like that I used back in my second semester of college to do Wake-on-LAN. You should look that up.

Just push the power button - no programming or script needed :P

Joking aside, some computers do allow you to schedule a power on. Check your computer's BIOS to see if you can. When it's turning on, look for instructions - probably a key press - to get into the config/setup. (Be REALLY careful in there.)

If so, you can then run your scripts from your Startup folder.

Hello :P

To turn on your computer, you have two ways :

- fisrt one : the BIOS of your motherboard (press F2 or DEL during boot sequence to access) to program a wake up according to date & time (example : wake up my computer each day at 3 PM) or according to an event on your network card :

-second one : the WOL (Wake On LAN). You must have a network card supporting WOL and your BIOS configured to wake up if the card receive an event (a WOL message is named a "magic packet")

Then you need a program to send this magic packet from an other computer. I recommend WOL command line software from DEPICUS : http://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/

it works :nuke:

I used to set up a BIOS wake-up every day so it would be up and ready when I came home from school. worked like a charm.

I dont get this concept. Window comes with the turn off switch in start menu and there is a button on motherboard that turns on the comp. How can comp be turned on when the script is not even running?

A third way would be for some basic electronics to drive a relay connected to the motherboard where the power on switch connects to, (its only a momentry contact) from another computer, you can use the printer port for this.

See this thread http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=31708

Way easier to use WOL though... :)
