I have my computer's outlet rigged to a light switch. Is it possible to make my computer turn on and off by it but also have the option to turn it on by the computer switch as well? If so how? Right now the problems I see myself running into is NOT KNOWING HOW TO DO IT. redface.gif

Go into BIOS and turn on "Turn back on at power loss"

Might want to get a UPS that connects to the computer so it shuts down gracefully....When the UPS loses power, the computer starts the shutdown process while running off of the UPS battery.
