Reporting in with the good news that yes, I still remember how to set up a task schedule. Chris' command script shut down and restarted the computer without any flaws. Now if I could get the computer to shut down like it did and then wait for 7 or 8 hours before it started again, that would be perfect!

It is too late now for one more :coffeetime: cause I got to get some :snore: time! :laugh:

I was looking at the BIOS on a Dell Latitude laptop today, and I noticed that it has an option to automatically start at a specified time.

Hi StuartR - I found a similar page in BIOS and have set it up. Now to see if my computer is actually on, when I want it to be. I didn't get a screen capture since I wasn't sure how to do that while in the BIOS. If it doesn't work, I'll use my phone camera and take a pic so you can see what I tried to do.

Anyway, tomorrow will tell the tale!

Thanks for the info. I always appreciate the excellent help. :smile:

Years ago, a kind mentor here advised me to turn off Automatic Flash when taking a digital camera image from the BIOS screen. Avoids that awful glare-back.
Cheers, Chris

Hi StuartR - It worked! :clapping: At least it did this morning. :yep: It took me to my log on screen. I don't usually dig around in BIOS because I am leery of changing something by accident and messing up the entire system. But for me, this is definitely worth the risk!

Thanks for the help!
