I have an old desktop computer that's running Windows XP. I'm thinking of using it as a server that I can host stuff on. The thing is, I don't want to have it open 24/7. I only need to start up at probably 8 or 9am then shutdown at 10pm. I'm doing this to somehow conserve electricity. Plus I won't be using it's services from 10pm to 8am the next day.
I want to automate the process of starting up and shutting down but I can't find a clear or definite way to set up my Windows XP machine to do just that.
What are the settings I need to toggle? Do I need to modify some BIOS-related settings? Do I have to download a 3rd party software? Is it even possible?
