There have been situations where one would want to automate a PC to revive on a schedule from a state of sleep/hibernate mode.
So that it would help save power and especially now that all companies are going for a GO GREEN way of doing things this would apply to IT Companies as well.
Hence below are various ways of doing this programmatically and if you are not a techie then there is a utility also mentioned below that will help you to just automate this process.
I am really excited to get this implemented in my Windows 7 PC…So what are you waiting for…
