Schedule power on... No option in bios?

Hi

My n54l is up and running. Managed to install a ssd and have the optical drive running off esata. Also tried to replace the fan (made a bit of a mess of that as I did not know about the wiring was different for a HP fan!). Working really well so far. One thing I cant find is scheduling start up in the Bios? I have scheduled windows 7 to auto shut down the proliant but I need to have the server turn on automatically. Want to save the power at night.

I do have a second n40l which is on all the time and I was thinking of scheduling start up with wake on LAN but thought the bios must support this?

 

Thanks

 

Andy

A server by nature is not designed to be cycled on and off like you are describing.  I realize you are running Windows 7 but the hardware is a server by design.

Thanks for the reply so I assume no help in the BIOS then.... I will go down the route of using wake on LAN. Saving energy is important for everyone these days even for a server. Surprised HP don't make it easier.

 

Thanks again.

Your right, saving energy is important. The microserver hardware is pretty efficient for a server. You will also find out that the sleep/hibernate functions on the Microserver aren't as good as you want either.

With LogMeIn, you can wake up an N40L. don't know about the 54 series though.
