Start Computer With Script

4 posts in this topic

I'm new to scripting (just started learning yesterday)

Is it possible to start my computer with a script, so that when the internal clock hits...say, 3:00am...the computer boots itself?

No.. But you might be able to do one of two things.. WOL (Wake On Lan) or WOT (Wake On Time) The WOT is when you go to your bios and set the time there (some bios doesnt have this feature).. The more complicated ... and thats why its funnyer.. is WOL where you can turn on your computer remote from nearly any places.

maybe I'm reading this wrong, but is it so that you want to startup the computer, and just make it reboot at a certain time ? then it's possible.

if you're using autoit you can start it and let it run and wait until the clock reaches 3... it might take up some CPUtime though.

another way could be to use the scheduler to make it run a program at a certain time, or perhaps even cron or at.

that is if I'm not reading you question wrong, in which case Shevilie is correct.
