In order to set a specific time to turn on your system you would need to change some settings on the BIOS.
Please follow these steps:
1. Go to the “Power” Tab.
2. Disable the “Intel Rapid Start technology”
3. Enable the “Wake system from S5”
4. On “Wakeup date” select zero (0) for daily basics.
5. On wakeup hour, select the hour in 24-hour format, then select the Wakeup minute.
I would also recommend you to please update the BIOS of your board since there are many fixes related to this feature. http://downloadmirror.intel.com/22879/eng/BE_0116_ReleaseNotes.pdf
If you are running an old BIOS version, please try to flash 1 or 2 before going to the latest one.
Thank you sylvia_intel for your quick reply. I tried as you have told above but I don't find anything like "Intel Rapid Start Technology" under Power menu or any other menu. And all other steps are same. But my system is not booting at specified time. There is another option like "on power failure" for that I've three options.
If I select 2nd option, last state it is working properly if my system was at hibernate or sleep mode at the time of power failure, it will boot automatically after it get power. But I've not idea why this option is not working.. And also I tried updating my BIOS with the BEH6110H.86A.0116.EB version, but BIOS itself is not installing. Please help me.
Learnerintel, please allow me to duplicate this behavior. I'll keep you posted.
I'm sorry, I didn't get you. What do you mean by "duplicate this behaviour" ? What I have to do to allow you to duplicate the behaviour ?
You don't need to do anything, just wait for the results.
Hello sylvia_Intel, I tried to update my BIOS version from 0023 to 0028 from inside windows (using .exe file) so that it could fix automatic boot issues. The update process went good without interruption but after the updating I couldn't access only windows 8.1 because it keeps restarting continuously by displaying the some message like- "Your PC ran into a serious problem. We need to restart your system" for a couple of seconds. But I also have installed Ubuntu 12.10. I can access Ubuntu without any issues its working fine. Why can"t I access only windows?
I want to make decision that
1. Should I go for recovery BIOS update or
2. Repair or Reinstall Windows ?
Which one do you suggest ?
Instead of going back to BIOS version 0023, you can try updating the BIOS until the latest version 0117.
This specific model has many different BIOS versions, which means there are many fixes between one and another.
Something very important for you to know is that BIOS version 0099 is the one that added support for Windows 8. However once you flashed this version, it will no longer be possible to downgrade the BIOS to any earlier version.
If you agree, I would recommend you installing the following BIOS on your system:
Once you flashed BIOS version 0099, you will be able to install Windows 8 without a problem.
Then you can continue updated the BIOS until the latest if you wish.
