Hello,
I have a DP35DP/Q6600/WIN7ULT. I can specify in the BIOS a time each day to wake up.
I would like to do this in Windows before I shutdown the system as I will be connected
via remote console.
Thanks.

Hello serialband,

Forgot to mention my Win7 is 64bit.

I played with stuff from this site last year. Found broken links.
He says he has and update UniWakeUp but I can't find it.

Tried CMOSTimer but it is 32 bit.
It seems to do something on my XP 32 bit machine but my DG101GCC has no wake timer,

Looked at NVRAM-WAKEUP but so far I only see it to be Linux.

Thanks.

How about this work-around.  Put your system into hibernate mode and schedule a task to start a program at the specified time.  http://www.pcworld.com/article/124169/article.html

Hello serialband,

The hibernate work-around, which I was trying to avoid, DOES work.
The CMOSTimer answer was also good, though not complete.
I think both of your responses were great.
Each are deserving of an acceptance.
Thanks.
P.S. now how do I do that?

The only other thing left is to write your own code or possibly install cygwin or colinux and run the linux tool that will do it.
