apc would solve all of this
Hi Trevor007,

I think it can be set in your BIOS. Restart ur PC, and press Del or F10 to go in BIOS.

Look for a setting under power management to set the computer to turn back on
after a power failure. It will be different for every BIOS.

I have an APC but sometimes the power can be off for several hours and I would need an expensive APC to last that long.

I will check the bios
for your motherboard, per page 4-33 of your manual, select the power page, then restore on AC power loss
