Depending on exactly what is required when starting up, here are some ideas
that might work:
-Remote login, using a product like Reachout from STAC. This would require
you to wake up and do it from home. PC/Windows
-If the computer controlling the process has a way of responding to commands
in a script, you might be able to program a script that automatically gets
executed at your specified time.
-If there are switches/other actions that are not fully controlled via the
computer, there might be the possibility of using X10 (one way comm.) or
LonWORKS (two way comm.) technology to let a macro script control electrical
switches through communication via the electrical building wiring. For more
info, turn to Echelon's web site, www.echelon.com, and www.x10.com, and www.
