How do you create task in task scheduler in windows 7 automatically turn on system that is i want to create a task so that the system automatically starts at or boots at some time ex. 2 AM.?

Windows Task Scheduler can only run when Windows is actively running on your computer (it is in system memory, the system is powered on, etc). Therefore, you cannot program Windows Task Scheduler to turn on your computer at 2AM, since the computer would be turned off. It would first need to be turned on in order to have Windows Task Scheduler turn the computer on (a Catch-22). Instead, look at your BIOS/CMOS configuration and see if it as an "alarm" feaure. Some BIOS code will allow you to program your motherboard to automatically power on at a certain time. This is notably true in older motherboards, but some newer motherboards might also have this feature. You should contact your computer's manufacturer or check the manual if you are unsure of how to access your BIOS configuration.
