I assume you mean that you want your computer to reboot at 7am.

You didn't give us your distribution, but you should be able to setup a cron job to do what your wanting. There are tons of tutorials on this subject...just google "setup cron job". Then if you have specific questions you can come back here.

Just curious though, why do you want your computer to reboot every morning?

well, check the bios. some bios makers builded in the function you just named. if it does not have the function maybe WOL...

WOL: Wake up On LAN request.

That was designed for computers switched off at night, but which had to be accessed by the network administrator.

So you switch off you PC at night, and want it to boot again in the morning? Some BIOSes have a provision for that. If not... though luck, no way to achieve this. Off = off.

My advice: just let your PC run. I do that with all my computers, and it does cost some electricity. But it simply is no use to switch them off when I am asleep and do not use a computer (which is from 00:30 until 06:15)

Mooi land, Belgie. Ik mag er graag zijn.
