try to see the bios handling for that - there is no such default thing for a machine
you could use some power management hardware to send an electrical impulse to turn on the pc if there would be such thing

most of the pcs have wake-on-lan signal, but this refers to the lan access, plus it wont give you a specific time of turning on

yes, but this comes with "waking up" the system, not turning it on from "off state"

The software is the closest thing to a solution to that problem...
It is true that you cannot boot automatically from an off state , the only thing that would come close to that is a PXE boot off the net card.

for wake on lan to work your bios has to support it and you netcard needs to support it.
Not sure if they offer trial software, you will have to check...

it is the bios variable, either you have it or not - the older bios may not have it
