The power to the PC can be controlled remotely by the Aviosys IP9258SP, but only if the PC is connected directly into one of the ports on the power switch itself.

Can the IP Power 9258 set one outlet to OFF then 45 mins later to ON; and do that up to seven times in one/same day?
You can set the schedule for a once a day action and repeat that every day, Monday to Friday and separately Saturday and Sunday. You can also set a delay on an action, so that On or Off won't take effect until a time has elapsed. In addition you can also use Wake on LAN so that a particular MAC address can wake the device up. However it is not possible to time multiple ON/Off actions on the same day.
