Hi,

I was wondering if anyone can help me to get the computer to boot at
particular time, eg. 8:00a.m?

Cheers

Your BIOS setup may offer this option. It's usually called something like
"Wake On Alarm" or the like. Check in there (use the delete, esc, of F1 key
normally when you boot or read the manual that came with your computer for
more information) and you may find that it's an option. If not then you
*might* be able to figure out a way to get PowerOff to do it for you:

Wake up sooner, and boot the computer by 8?

If that is not possible, you must either have, or purchase, a
motherboard which contains a BIOS which allows your computer to boot
automatically at a certain time. See the User Manual for your
motherboard.

Otherwise if your System Bios has a function to Wake-on-LAN, you could
get someone with a computer and Internet connection to call your
computer at 8 and wake it up.

Wake up, lazybones!!! Get up, Get up!!!
