    I run a home server on OEM 2003 Standard Server. I have seen that Home Server allows you to schedule a Hibernate / wake cycle. Is there any free software that can do this for 2003 Server?

    eg

    From 2:00am until 12:00pm I want the server to be in Hibernate mode.

    I've always just used a scheduled shutdown command, and the BIOS power on at a certain time feature available on most motherboards to do that.

    That's what I do with my media PCs.

    I don't want to shut down as I want to be able to send the magic packet as well.
