    Pretty amazing pc hardware assembly setup you have there! Should be comfortable enough for any softy you can throw at it. How feel this +20TB hard drive?
    And are you one of the very few who is running the FD's "Rescue" version from Leapfrog?

    Btw no, unfortunately, I don't know of any program that can start your pc like that, when the system is really off (I mean not hibernating).
    Maybe via some BIOS' timer settings?

    Most BIOS since P60 era have had a wakeup timer built in. I can't recall the last one that didn't unless it was Dell or HP or something. Sometimes OEM BIOS don't have all the bells and whistles that retail boards have.

    Regardless, you need to examine your BIOS for a wakeup event timer. Most can start at specific time every day.
