Keeping a computer on ALL the time
Hi, just wondering if anyone has a way to keep a computer on all the time?
One of our machines has a usb hard drive attached to it that we keep a backup of important data (not the only backup we have!). But it's a network share so the computer attached to it needs to be on all the time. It's not a NAS Drive (wanted NTFS).
Is there anyway to make sure a computer stays on? I've changed the power settings in XP to 'always on' and made it so it does nothing when the power button is pressed, but the user can still do start->shutdown.
2 possible ways are to prevent the computer shutting down, or having a way of constantly checking that it is on (and turning it on if it isn't), neither of which I know how to do!
