    In my old job I used an Apple Mac. On there was a hugely useful feature, where you could tell the computer what time you wanted it to start up each morning. I didn't have to be there to press the 'on' switch - it just did it by itself and when I arrived at work the computer was already booted up and ready to go.

    What I'm wondering is, does anything similar exist for PCs? I can't find anything in my current set-up (I'm running two PCs - one with XP, the other with 2K Pro). Is there anything about that I can download?

    I just want the PC to start itself up before I get to work, so it can run through all the virus-checks etc. before I get there.

    If it is there, it is a BIOS option under the Power Saving settings. There are usually Wake-up options there.
