i have in BIOS Power State setting Always On,
ICS is in my Projector and both are in one extension cord with switch.
In ICS is KODI and is set to turn off ICS after 30 minutes inactivity, same as projector.
Than my kids can just turn cord switch off and on to turn on both, but this work only on projector, ICS is still off.
Because we have a ceiling mount, they can not turn it on manually.
Please keep in mind that your Intel® Compute Stick Supported Operating System is Windows® 10, Kodi® has not been validated by Intel®; If you are running Kodi® for Windows® bear in mind that it says that, runs natively on Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.
This is some information I could find about Kodi® for Windows® I hope this could help.
In this link is the Supported Operating System for Intel® Compute Stick

I have Kodi for Windows. (Maybe like 90% of ICS users)
There is no reason for this - after correct shut down and turn extension cord switch to off and on, ICS is still off. Kodi is just normal software what say to Windows to turn off.
If i just switch extension cord switch to off and on, without correct shut down the windows, everything is ok.
Please let me know if what you want to is to have the compute stick on after power failure, because after a normal shut down on Windows®, your Intel® Compute Stick STK1AW32SC will need you to press the power bottom to turn on again.
The wake after power failure option in the BIOS is not available on this Intel® Compute Stick STK1AW32SC; this option might be available on Core™ M sticks in the future.
STK1AW32SC has power settings - Always ON
Problem solved with an extension cord with switch: When I turn off the normal shutdown even switch on a power strip and when you turn it on again (for at least 30 seconds) turns on itself.
