I want my Windows 2012 server to be able to come up automatically from total shutdown at set intervals

I want to set up my server to shutdown gracefully automatically at 10pm and come up at 6:230am . I was able to configure a scheduler to shut it down , but i cant find Power-On-Alarm as found in the older OS to kick start the Operating system. Does anyone know how to achieve this on Windows server 2012?

You can try this: How to Make Your PC Wake From Sleep Automatically

Server 2012 Essentials Auto wake up and Sleep mode?

Schedule Windows to Sleep and Wake Automatically

You can also configure a Wake-On-LAN and wake it up from another computer via task scheduler or third party software.

You can try the first two suggestions.  If we have to look into the Wake On Lan solution then we will explore that option if the first two isn't working.

You can power any HP server on and off using the iLO remote power button, you don't need iLO advanced license for this. You can also script it with RIBCL although you have to run the script on a PC since the server's off.


CPQLOCFG.EXE -S Server1 -F Set_Host_Power.xml


Set_Host_Power.xml

<RIBCL VERSION="2.0">
   <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="root" PASSWORD="rootpassword">
      <SERVER_INFO MODE="write">
         <!-- Modify the HOST_POWER attribute to toggle power on the host server -->
         <!-- HOST_POWER="No"  (Turns host server power off)              -->
         <!-- A graceful shutdown will be attempted for ACPI-aware        -->
         <!-- operating systems configured to support graceful shutdown.  -->
         <!-- HOST_POWER="Yes" (Turns host server power on) -->
         <SET_HOST_POWER HOST_POWER="Yes"/>
      </SERVER_INFO>
   </LOGIN>
</RIBCL>

(just Google for "Set_Host_Power.xml" for HP's examples, can't find URL since they became hpe.com so getting everything from Google's cache at the moment.)
