    auto power on is not supported by any current peripherals, but you can do auto-shutoffs by using timer softwares.

    Try auto power on & shutdown software. You have to place your system in hibernate state for the software to work.

    That's right. If you put your System in hibernate mode , then the software can
    auto power-on. Auto-shutdown can be done by creating a task to Shutdown,
    and adding it to the task-scheduler. Do remember that hibernate mode consumes
    a little power!!

    It is poossible if u hav electricity supply

    Go to bios>Power mgmt(or similar stuff)>APM(auto power on or mgmt)

    Enable power on by rtc alarm/alarm

    Select the day(s) u wanna boot ur pc automatically.

    Done, make sure u dont switch off the electricity source

    Am not sure but does APC UPS service have some stuff on auto power on in case its connected to the PC via a serial cable? I am just guessing, not sure as I said before.
