    Shutdown Restart


    Hi All,

    I have started an automated shutdown of my Unix system at 20:00 using shutdown -P 20:00 as I need it to power down. Once the shutdown has completed, is the a way to get the system to start up again say about 2 - 3 hours later?

    Hi and welcome

    - Some BIOSes support the configuration of a wake up time
    - If you have a network card and motherboard with the WakeOnLan (WOL) feature, then you can send a magic packet to this server
    - Any decent server has out-of-band management. This can be used to power on a machine.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
