Hello Everyone.

 

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.

 

Many Thanks :)

I would think...that a conversation is in order with whomever initially set the NC devices up...I would not assume that you can treat those kinds of tools...like some of us treat our PCs :).

Hi Louis.

 

Thanks for reply but the manufacturer is not very helpful, and wants to send an engineer from Germany. Its not that important to warrant that cost but more of an inconvenience!!

Is the CNC machine connected to XP via Ethernet? Right click the Network Adapter in Device Manager, Select the Power Management tab. Make sure "Allow this device to wake the computer" is checked. If it is checked uncheck it and press apply then recheck and apply again. Make sure Wake on LAN is also enabled in BIOS.

Hi John.

 

That looks like the answer.

I'm off until next week but I will let you know how I get on.

 

Many Thanks

Alan
