Re: Skeduler for turning computer on and off

OK, I'm back with a report on starting a Mac on a schedule. I was dubious, and frankly expected failure. But no! At six o'clock this morning, as my four-legged alarm-clock awoke us, I heard the familiar Apple bong. Amazing!

It works either way. complete shutdown or just sleeping. Your PC is never totally off unless it is unplugged from power.
As the excellent help from another lister shows you can set your PC to Power on  by timer or LAN.

That's right, but notice the active/important phrase "sleep mode", which is not the same as turning something off completely.

Wake on LAN is a technology that allows a network professional to remotely power on a computer or to wake it up from sleep mode. By remotely triggering

the computer to wake up and perform scheduled maintenance tasks, the technician does not have to physically visit each computer on the network.

Every version of Windows back to at least XP,maybe even further, has a program called Task Scheduler. You can certainly add a task to shut the machine down in there. Starting it again, though, I don't think is possible. In fact, I'd go out on a limb to say it is absolutely positively not possible. Think about it: How would a device that's quiet, not taking power, not responsive to any stimuli either internal or external, know, or be told by some external force, that it's time to turn on?

Hi:

 

Do you know if they make a skeduler to turn off the computer at a certain time.

 

I download podcasts but I don’t want to sit here until they all download.

 

I was hoping that there would be a way to shut the computer down at acertain time?

 

Any help would be appreciated.
