I moved from a Dell which had a BIOS setting to auto power up (day of week and time) which was very useful. I can't find any setting in the BIOS for a similar capability with my Yoga 730. Anyone have a solution?
Thanks. Great machine so far (1 week).

AIUI, the BIOS on newer computers no longer contains the RTC settings, so you'd probably have to rely on Task Manager to wake the computer from sleep.

You did turn off hybrid sleep/hibernate and set the computer to never hibernate, right? Task Scheduler can wake it from sleep, but not hibernation.

Can any of you help me with the following case:
I'm trying to turn on the "auto power on" mode on my lenovo but I can't find a way. I've checked the BIOS but it does no show "power options" or similar.
How do I know if this model has the Auto Power On option? If it does, how do I configure it?.
Thanks a lot.

Depends on what you're trying to do. If you just want the computer to wake up at a certain day and time, you can configure that in Windows Advanced Power settings. Just make sure the computer sleeps and is not shut down. I could be wrong, but I don't think wake timers will power up a shut down computer.
If you're looking to have the computer power up after a power failure, if you don't see that setting in BIOS, then it's not something the computer can do. I'm sure some older laptops might have had that capability, but AFAIK newer ones don't.

This was exactly what I was asking. I was tryinh to find out how I could shut down the computer and then it would power on aumatically. I used to do that whit my older computer but as you mentioned, it seems that the new ones do not have the option to power on a computer from a complete shut down.
I used to do it by changin the power section in the BIOS but I could find it on the new computer.
