I just purchased an Intel NUC to be used with Ubuntu 16.04,
I have found a gui utility to schedule the machine to turn off each night,
However, I am trying to find a way to get the machine to auto power-on/Start up each morning.
I have tried the Power - Scheduled Wake Up options in the BIOS, however it doesn't work. It will not power on.
Is this technically possible, ie, schedule a Non-Windows OS on Intel NUC to power-own each morning from either the BIOS or a GUI App (I dont want to manually run a script each day).
Please attach an image of your bios settings that did not work for you.
I've checked in my NUC and I confirm that scheduled wake up function is not working any more. It was working in the past, but some bug was introduced in the new bios version. Sorry.
I've performed my test again. And this time it was working (i.e. NUC is automatically powering ON according to time schedule in BIOS). This is how I did this test:
1. Enter bios and set the power setting similar to the attached image (of course the time is according to your requirement).
2. Press F10 followed by "Y" to save the settings and exit BIOS.
3. Let the NUC completely restart to the Operating System (on my previous unsuccessful test I didn't wait till the restart process finishes and have forced Power OFF).
4. Shutdown NUC and wait to automatic restart.
Hope it will work for you
I finally got it working,
Yesterday while re-attempting to get it to work, i noticed that the BIOS Time kept changing back to AM and about 11hours previous to the current time,
So i did a bit of searching and apparently its a known issue with Linux/Ubuntu where the time gets changed in the BIOS back to UTC time automatically.
So there was a command i had to run while in Ubuntu to set the System Clock to use the Local Time, not UTC time.
After doing this, i can confirm if is now working.
Do you you know if there is an auto shutdown option in the Bios, i couldnt see one on mine so suspect theres not,
Or do you use a utility within ubuntu and if so, which one please?
I don't know any BIOS option to auto shutdown the computer. I'm using Windows 10 and not Ubuntu. Search net and you will find applications like: EasyShutdown or ComplexShutdown, but I've never used those application and can not recommend them.
Thanks for re checkIng.
I thought i did allow the statem to boot and then gracefully shutdown though cant recall for sure.
I will re check toNight once home. Much appreciated.
