In the BIOS, go to the Power menu and check the box for Wake System from S5. Then you will see four additional options to set the wakeup date, hour, minute and second. This may be what you are looking for.
Here is an explanation of these settings:
BIOS Setting Options Description / Purpose Wake system from S5 • Enable
Enable or disable system wake on alarm event. When enabled, system will wake on the day/hour/minute/second specified. Wakeup Date Numeric range
0 - 31
Select day of each month to wake the system. Select 0 for daily wakeup. Wakeup Hour Numeric range
0 - 23
Select wakeup hour in 24-hour format. For example, 15 means 3 PM. Wakeup Minute Numeric range
0 - 59
Select wakeup minute. Wakeup Second Numeric range
0 - 59
Select wakeup second.
Brilliant! Sorry I missed that. Thanks for your quick and comprehensive answer.
First of all thanks for your information. I search exactly for the same problem. But theres still a Problem, maybe you can help me...
I did everthing exactly like you said, but the computer does simply not start.
My Settings are:
Wake system from S5 = Enable
Wake up date = 0
Wake up hour = 9
Wake up minute = 0
Wake up second = 0
Wake on PS/2 Keyboard from S5 = Stay Off
If Im right, the computer shoud start at 9am each day. To test the settings, I have set the time before the acutal time, as example if its now 11.56 I set the time to wake up at 12.05.
Im not sure, maybe i forgot something important? Do I have to change settings somewhere else?
I would be happy, if someone could help me, even if this post is more than a year old.
Let me try to reproduce this here in my lab. I'll need to know about your system:
- Which NUC model do you have?
- What BIOS version is installed?
- What operating system is installed?
Thanks a lot, but I already found a solution without the bios settings.
I'm facing the same problem.
I didn't what mentioned to checked the wake system from s5 and configure:
but it didn't not wake up after i shutdown my system.
I'm using intel desktop board D54250WYK
loaded windows 8.1
The thing is, it doesnt matter for me if my computer is shutdown or just in sleep mode. So I created two tasks in taskscheduler to set my computer into sleepmode and wake it up again in the morning.
If this solution works for you too, Id like to help. Just let me know.
Sorry to piggy-back on this post, but I'm having exactly the same issue.
I am unable to configure the Intel NUC D54250WYK to wake from s5 via the visual BIOS.
We're running the latest BIOS version (BIOS Update [WYLPT10H.86A] - W0027) with Windows 8.1 Professional installed.
We've used the D54250WYK machines in the past and had no issue with the BIOS-triggered wake.
We'll be installing these machines on site within the next few days and desperately need a solution to the problem.
Can you help us at all?
I just now set up the same NUC model that you have and set the Wake System From S5 to wake itself up in 5 minutes, fully expecting to see the same problem you are reporting. But, I must say, I was disappointed, as it woke right up on schedule!
So, let's explore what might be different about your system.
- I used BIOS version 0028 which just came out a couple of days ago, so you should try that one: Intel® Download Center
- Make sure your system date and time are set correctly.
- When setting the wakeup hour, note that if it's P.M., it must be in the 24-hour clock format. I.E. 3pm is set in BIOS as 15 (not 3).
If none of this helps, I'd need a bit more information about your configuration:
- SA # from the label on the bottom of the NUC unit.
- What day, hour, minute, second are you trying to set.
- How are you shutting down the NUC (prior to when you want it to wake)? Is it truly in an S5 state?
