This is probably a really easy question but it's been bugging me for sometime. At 06.00 everyday all the pc's at my office power on (automatically). How is this done. Can I apply the same technology at home? thanks a lot for the help.

Hi Chrischik,

Search bios, there must be something like: power up or power up from ...
If your bios is young enought, you can do that at home too.
If I'm not misunderstanding something :)

Cheers!
