though some do...or did allow PCs to start automatically at a specific time of day. You can find programs that will do such. Google will help you find them.
Both my sons rarely ever shutoff there computers and i believe this is a waste of energy and money, so!! I am asking is there some place in the Bios of the computerS or where ever that the computers can be set where when not in use for say an hour, then it would shutdown automatically.
Both systems are generic computers using XP-PRO, 1200MHZ CPU, 384MB, 1.2GHZ
