Resume by RTC Alarm
Posted on 2006-04-25
MSI K8N Neo4 Platimum Board provides Wake UP event Setup under Power Management in Setup. Options are to Enable/Disable, Set Date (0-31) and Time (HH:MM:SS). If I want the computer to turn on at 4 pm every day of the week how would I specifiy values for Date and Time? Once set, does this take place automatically after I Shutdown, or must I leave the computer in some other state?
Ultimately this is designed to allow Quicken to perform a "Scheduled Update". In order for the update to run, once the computer is up and running, a Pin Vault password must be entered. I've indicated the password is to be provided at Windows startup. Assuming I did a "shutdown" at the end of the day, and the RTC alarm turns the computer on a specific time, how does this password get entered? If, instead of shutdown I leave the computer in some other state, would the passworld still reside from previous Windows startup?
I know....lots of questions... but I appreciate the "magic" that can happen here.
Thanks in advance.
