    server powerdown for my sanity

    I have an old physical server I'm using for WSUS. I set it up in my workroom, but as a 1u howler I find him tedious. anyway can I schedule a sleep mode for him during the day? then have him wake up at say 3:30 to pickup updates and distribute at 17:30. (when the clients are scheduled to talk to it.)

    There maybe turn on features in the BIOS.. some of our servers have it you can set a time for them to switch on daily.

    Is it an HP (I only mention HP as its the only server kit I use)? Does it have iLO? You could do a scheduled task to sleep at a certain time then use WOL to wake it up?

    Every Dell desktop BIOS I've seen has options for scheduled wake up, but I don't know about server hardware. If it isn't present in the BIOS then as @fairm010 mentioned you should look at a scheduled WOL operation from another workstation to turn it on. Depending on the hardware though it might not support S3 sleep. I know the Perc5 RAID controllers in Dell servers do not support any kind of power saving, so you could be out of look in that regard with your Fujitsu server. If sleep doesn't work, then I would think a scheduled task to just shut it down would work.
