Power on

The new computers now come with a feature which prevents the computer from going on automatically after a power interruption (then you have to push the on switch again by hand).

Any idea how is this implemented and how can I disable it?

I want my computer to go on automatically after a power interruption.

There has been a week of no activities.  Since, I think I have offered an answer, I will go ahead and lock up this question.

Hi,

Do you know what kind of motherboard you have?  

You should have an option under your BIOS settings to make your computer resume after power interruption.

It is usually under the Power Management section of the BIOS.  It should be something like "AC Power Loss Restart" option, where you can enable it to allow the system boots up after reapplying power.

Hope this will help.

If you really have that much of a problem with power interruption you should consider a battery backup power supply.  APC makes some starting at $70 or so.  Intermittently losing the power *will* one day result in losing data if not losing hardware.  Computers are very sensitive to power surges that happen when the wall outlet power comes back on after having been cut.

The motherboard is of this kind:

AOpen AX3L Socket 370 PPGA, Sound & ATX.

There is no such an option in the BIOS.

I thought it's possiple by modifying some wires on the hardware (motherboard or power supply)

Hey, Barzangy:

Go back to your BIOS and look under Integrated Peripherals, AC PWR Auto Recovery. The defalut setting is OFF which menas that the system will stay off after a power failure.  Select ON if you want the system to automatically power-on after AC power resumes.

This is much better than modifying wires on the hardware.  I think I deserve an A grade on this question. :)
