>  cannot find setting in BIOS ...

 

Are you sure?

 

Most BIOS SETUP menus do have something under the "Power" section, allowing for scheduling of "wake-up" events.

 

Can you use your smart-phone to snap a picture of your BIOS SETUP screen, and attach it here?

[Power]

 

After AC Power Failure [Auto]

XD (Execute Disable) [Disabled]

 

I think that 'Auto' means that if your computer was running when the AC power is lost, your computer will restart when the AC power is restored.   Probably not good, if you leave your computer on when you're out of your home, and there is a power "bump".  It could restart, with a small possibility of a "power-spike" when the power is restored, and the slight possibility of internal combustion.  I would set it to 'Off'.

 

XD is a feature exploited by Windows, to mark sections of RAM as "data" or as "instructions" ("add X to Y").

Some computer-viruses try to overlap their selected "data" into an area where Windows has "instructions", with the hope that Windows will to try execute their "data" as "instructions", not realizing that the Windows "instructions" have been replaced by rogue instructions.  I would set it to 'Enabled'.  If it causes problems (as it does with iTunes under Windows Vista), just turn it off.  Or leave it on, system-wide, and customize Windows to NOT use XD for that one specific application.

Nothing in that section about the RTC ???  Picture?

I don't see anything, other than a sub-menu for "Hardware Monitor".  Unlikely, but is there anything there?

 

Is there an updated BIOS available for the motherboard?

Thanks for looking into this for me. I will do something with sleep mode. We are just using this old computer to do a menu sign. All the other one I did had the setting and would shut down at night and com on the next morning. Just never seen a BIOS without RTC alarm setting. It is the latest version I found at HP.
