    Timer settings in a PC

    I always wanted one function in a PC, which is to turn ON and OFF a PC with timer settings like in TV timer function. I have not found one motherboard manufacturer come up with that feature in their BIOS level.

    Once I wrote one letter to ASUS to incorporate a timer setting in their motherboard, but they have not even acknowledged my letter.

    Are there any technical issues having a timer in a PC to turn ON and OFF at a set time? I can see one issue with shutting down the OS and then the PSU or it is something beyond my understanding.

    It is built into some motherboards, in the BIOS look under “Power Management” and look for something similar to "PWron/Resume by alarm”. You can enable it and set an alarm time to turn the computer on.

    For shutting it down do a google search, there are many freeware apps that will shut it down by alarm.
