Auto power on when supply goes on

HP Recommended
Z2 G3 miniworkstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would link to start workstation as soon as I power on the supply, but I didn't find falg in bios: is it possible?

Not sure what you mean:

 

When we all push the power button there is the boot up process that takes some time before the operating system can start.  Is it that you want that time shortened?

 

There are some changes in BIOS that can be used to speed this boot up process, and the very best way to get a sense of speed through that period is to be booting from a SSD instead of a hard disk drive (HDD).  Hopefully you have a SSD.

Please keep looking.

 

Most BIOS SETUP menus have two settings:

 

1. automatically power-on at hh:mm on either "every-day" or specific days;

 

2. automatically power-on after power is restored after an outage.

 

Specifically, what model-number of computer do you have?

I'm sorry. I thought that the model was precompiled by HP, I'm coming here from support.

 

I know that BIOS usually has the option you wrote about. Specifically the HP Z2 miniworkstation has the power supply at 19V, from an external adapter. I did'n found the option, but BIOS setup is huge... so I guess if anyone had the same need.

 

I need the power on after an outage (every time that the power goes on).

Can you use your smart-phone to snap a picture of every BIOS screen, and post those images here?

Perhaps, we can see something about those "automatic power-on" options that you cannot find.
