Hi, I'm from Australia, there is not many locations to access a hands on of a NUC to inspect it's compatibility for implementation of solutions.
I was wondering if someone who already has one can answer a quick question for me.
What power on options and shutdown options are available within the bios?
some bios / devices, allow to set time based power on and power off activation states. this works well for digital signage solutions.
previously I had used old PC's with resume power on after power interruption, combined with timer based power adapters, although most of these adapters don't work well, and are not time accurate, and also can force the machine off without a proper shutdown, putting the OS at risk.
I had hoped to control this functionality through replacing my current systems with NUC's.
The following are the options that you will see under the power tab in the BIOS:
Intel(R) Dynamic power technology
Enhanced Intel(R) SpeedStep(R) Technology
Processor Power Efficiency Policy
OS ACPI C2 Report
OS ACPI C3 Report
Intel(R) Rapid Start Technology
Intel(R) Smart Connect Technology
After Power Failure
Wake on LAN from S4/S5
S3 State indicator
Wake System from S5
PCIe ASPM Support
Native ACPI OS PCIe Support
Flash Update Sleep Delay
