You can use an Allow Wake Timer to bring your computer out of its “Sleep” state on a scheduled time, so you don’t have to be around the computer to wake it up personally. This may be an essential feature to some people—perhaps you know someone needs to remote connect to your computer, but you won’t be around to let them in, so forth.

The following tutorial demonstrates how to add and remove the Allow Wake Timers to the Power Options menu when you’re using a version of the Windows 10 operating system.

An example of the Allow Wake Timers settings from the Power Options menu:
