Hi there, are you using a desktop or a laptop?can a piece of software do it?
what can i try? i just want to turn the laptop off for 8 hours and then turn it back on by itself.
ok this sounds great. i've got a dell latitude. how can i activate the 'wake function'?Hi there, are you using a desktop or a laptop?
Here is the thing,
I use a program called as atomic alarm clock on my laptop.
It has an option - "wake computer from hibernation"
So here is what I do :-
set the alarm when I want the computer to wake up, put my laptop in hibernation mode, and I make sure that the power cord is PLUGGED IN right from the start, even when my battery is completely charged.
So at the specific alarm time, my laptop just wakes up from hibernation.
Now please note, that this works for ME, as CWWOZNIAK rightly said, the BIOS should support the function.
Have also tested it with my friend's laptops, and it seems to work.
My current laptop is a DELL INSPIRON 14R, with Windows 7 Installed.
Maybe geek-assist meant to say "Active Alarm Clock" instead of "Atomic Alarm Clock", both from the same company.well i just installed atomic alarm clock but i don't see anything about waking hibernation.
As an alarm clock, Active Alarm Clock can be scheduled to wake the user up in the morning or remind of important events or things to do during the day. Notification can be scheduled to run once at a particular time or at preset times repetitively and wake computer up from Standby or Hibernate.
