I work on a variety of CNC ( Computerized Numerical Control) production machines.
I have a Windows PC based CNC machine which has Windows XP running as the platform.
Originally when the main power was switched on to the CNC machine the PC automatically started to boot up.
No changes have been made to my knowledge but now the PC has to be started separately! This may not sound like a big problem but accessing it in the control panel of the machine every day is a bit of a bind.
Is there a setting in Windows XP which will automatically boot the computer when mains power is applied to the CNC machine?
I would be grateful of any help.
