There's a possible solution without wake on LAN. It would require to hibernate the server instead of shutting it down.
Task1: hibernate. Command: shutdown -h, executing account: system
Task2: wakeup. Command: ping localhost, executing account:system. Set the task option option to reactivate a sleeping computer.

Please note that hibernate consumes next to no energy.
Note 2: maybe you will need to enable hibernation, first, using the command:
powercfg -h on

Shutdown yes, use the task scheduler.
Startup... kinda; use wake on lan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wake-on-LAN

Yes, for shutdown, you can put this line in batch script:

shutdown -s -f -t 1

And then you can schedule it in the schedule task to run on that particular time.

Yes. But that info doesn't invalidate the advice given. Any machine can use task scheduler and/or wake on LAN. :-)

Since it is a laptop, make sure the network cards (wireless or LAN as applicable) are not set to shut down to save power... at least for testing. I know it shouldn't be neccessary, but I have seen this setting be the cause of Wake on LAN not working.
You'll also find the wake on LAN settings in there as well.

Because this laptop is on Windows 10, i think that it must be an App that does that. Do you all know one App which would also wake up a stand alone computer?
