Yoga 730 auto power on?

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.

I was hoping to avoid this but appreciate your reply. I'll try and figure out how to put the PC to sleep then wake it via task manager.

Thanks,

I tried task scheduler but it does not seem to work. It should but I cannot seem to get it to do so. Thanks for the attempt, though!

Yeah, I am trying the Task Scheduler but it doesn't seem to work. Something isn't turned on somewhere.
Thanks for the note, regardless!

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.
