Today’s article will show you how to get your PC to start automatically at a specific time. If you are using a Windows PC, you can schedule an automatic boot in the system BIOS.


Note: If you are using Linux, please refer to the instructions: How to automatically turn on Linux automatically for details.


Step 1: Reboot the PC into the BIOS

– A specific scheduled PC boot option is available in the BIOS, which you can access by pressing a specific key on boot. This key is usually Del, F8 or F12 or F10. If you’re on a newer Windows 10 PC, try the following steps to get into BIOS:

– Right-click on the Start menu and select Settings.
– Click Update & Security.
– Click on Recovery.
– Click Restart Now under Advanced Startup.
– When the computer is working again, click the Troubleshoot menu.
– Click Advanced Options
– Click on UEFI Firmware Settings and select Restart.


Step 2: Navigate to the option Power on Alarm or RTC Alarm

The name of this menu varies from manufacturer to manufacturer and may be in the menu titled Advanced.


Step 3: Select how often to turn on the machine according to the schedule

The steps to do this vary by PC, but you’ll often use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight the day of the week you want the computer to start up at a certain time, and then press the key to enable or disable (Disable) for that day.

Step 5: Save changes and exit BIOS
