Auto Powerup after power failure
Posted on 2003-10-30
Problem : Have a remote site that has crappy power hence each system has a UPS installed that shuts down the pc when the power goes out, my problem is the site is unattended for 2 months of the year so what I need is a utiltiy that will power up the pc's (winxp) when the mains power is restored. At present someone has to drive 300KM to turn on the pcs after a power out. I found a bios option but this is for and unclean shutdown not a clean shutdown which is what would happen if the UPS shuts down the pc. And for me to do WOL I would have to know when the sites power had failed. This would be fairly hard as there is no one there for 2 months December / January to inform me. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Sorry if it is in the wrong forum but I didnt know if it is hardware or software.
