Enjoy a Happy and a Sleep'y Downloading , During 2 to 8.

It is really difficult for us to use the full length of free hour or the happy hour, i.e (2 am to 8 am) from BSNL data-one broadband (Rs 500plan) which give a limit of 2.5 GB of data transfer during normal time, if we want to download something like game , movie or some big file then we really need to use the full length of free hour, but it is not possible for us to wake up at 2’0 clock in the night and start up the computer manually to start downloading the file… In that case we need an automatic way, in which the computer will start automatically at 2’0 clock and start downloading the given file. Many third party software are available for automatic startup, but they do not work properly.

While searching through the tutorial section of thinkdigit forum, one person named
"yrana2002" has really posted a very good topic regarding automatic startup of computer without any third party software. I personally tried it and its really working for me…

Here are the step by step process for that :

Step : 1. Configure your BIOS, for an automatic start up .

Instead of using third party softwares for automatic startup, we use a utility now available in most BIOS.
Note: This one is for Phoenix Award BIOS
(1) Enter your BIOS at bootup by pressing del, F1, enter, etc.

(2) Go to Power Management Tab and select the option of Automatic Power On.

(3) Chose The Option for Scheduled Power on-> Set it Enabled-> Set it Daily-> Enter the time as 02/05/00 for dataone->Chose Startup Sequence as Automatic-> Press Esc.->Got to Exit and choose Save & Exit.

Note: You may change the timings as per your appropriation. However, bsnl's clock may not match with yours.

If u use passwords for logging in, you can follow these steps:

(i) Go to the Start Menu and the Run box.

(ii) Type in the following:

control userpasswords2

now click OK

(iii) In the new Windows that appears select the account you wish to make the primary logon.

Now uncheck the "Users must enter a username and password..." box.

(iv) Hit Apply and a dialog box will appear asking you to confirm the selected users password.

Step : 2. Configure your download accelerator or bittorrent client.

This section explains how to configure torrent clients for automatic startup & downloading.

It uses a windows utility called as 'Task Schedular'
.

To open it,
Go to Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Scheduled Tasks.

(1) Click Add a new task.

(2)A windows will appear. Select Next

(3)Select your torrent client from the list or click browse & then click next.

(4) Select the option of daily"Daily" and click next.

(5) In the start time column, fill in 2:10:00 AM and select Everyday and click Next.

(6) There will be fields for username & password. The username field would have been filled automatically. If not, then enter the username you use to log on to your PC. In the password section, enter your password, if you use one. If not, leave them blank and click next.

Note: If u dont give a correct password or no password, then it will give you an error. Do not worry, check at the end of this section

(7)
When the task is created, right click the task and select Properties.

If u have not entered the password or have got an error when adding the task, select 'Run only if logged on'.

(8) Click The Settings Tab.
Check "Stop if task runs for" and enter values as 5 hours 37 minutes. ( again it depends upon you). Click Ok.

This configures your client to run at 2:10 A.M. and shut down automatically at 7:47A.M.

For configuring the client settings, ( Here is an example of Bitcomet)
Click Prefereces-> Go To appearance and check the options of 'Auto -resume tasks on startup'.

This ensures that whenever the client starts, it will automatically start downloading the tasks.
Imp: Whenever closing the client, ensure that you don't stop the tasks or else the next time, they won't start automatically.

Some users may be using DAP as their download managers. For them,
1. Start Download Accelerator Plus->Go to Tools Menu->Options.

2. In General, check "Launch DAP on startup".

3. Select Schedular and check "Start Schedular at" and select Daily and enter start time as 2:10:00 A.M. and also check "Stop Schedular at" and enter values as 7:50:00 A.M.
You may also want to shut down the pc. For that check the options...
'Hang up Modem', 'Quit Download Accelerator' and 'Shutdown computer'.
Click close

Step : 3. Make a new schedule task for an Automatic Shutdown.
Now, the final step is shutting down the pc after the downloading.
We saw how it can be done with DAP above.
For others, here's a guide..
(1) Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.

(2) In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s
Click the Next > button.

(3) In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter Shutdown. Click Finish.

This creates a shortcut on the desktop which shuts down the pc.

(4) Now, again go to Task Schedular->Add new task.
Choose the file "shutdown" just created. Click Next..

(5) Again, select perform this task Daily, choose start time as 7:53 A.M. Click Next...

(6)
The username field would have been filled automatically. If not, then enter the username you use to log on to your PC. In the password section, enter your password, if you use one. If not, leave them blank and click next.

(7) Click Finish. Now, again right click on task, click properties and ensure that the 'Run only if logged on' box is checked. Click OK.

Now, the procedure will be as follows:

Startup at 2:05 AM,
Client Starts at 2:10 AM ( Download start at 2:10AM)
Client stops at 7:47AM ( Download stop at 7:50AM)
Computer shuts down at 7:53 AM.
