Default automatic start up?

Is there any way to make your computer turn on automatically at some given time?

Not that i know of. they have wall plugs with timers but you would still have to push the on button on the computer.

You can schedule tasks to run such as programs or some sort of that, but i don't believe that you can turn on your computer on automatically.

yes there are wake on ring programs or wake on lan programs but your motherboard must be set up to do it
Now that is turning it on from a remote location. then there are programs to reformat and to perform all kinds of utillity maintenance
