NUC10i7FNH: Is there a way to have it return to the last power state after a power failure?


I have a NUC10i7FNH version K61081-306, and I'm trying to configure it so that it automatically restarts after a power failure. 

I remember some of the older NUC devices I've worked with have had a BIOS setting that las a "Last Power State" option...if the system was off, it stays off - if it was on and power is cut, it comes back on automatically. I can't find an option like this on the NUC10i7FNH.  

I need to use the NUC in an unattended location, so if it stays off after a brief power failure, it's not much use to me. For now, I have the device on a UPS to handle brief outages, but that's not going to work long term. 

Anything I've missed?

Assuming this isn't possible, is there a simple hack to the power button I can use to automatically turn the system on whenever power is applied?

1. Enter BIOS settings by pressing on F2 when you see the Intel NUC logo during boot.

2. Click on Power > Secondary Power Settings > After Power Failure, set to Last State

3. Click on F10 to save the settings and exit to Windows.






Thank you so much - I must have been having a senior moment...I did search for exactly what you say, but I must not have scrolled far enough down the list of options to see it.
