We have a few Surfaces available on standing desks in our public areas, kiosk style, which can be used for casual surfing and booking appointments etc. We would like to automatically power these on at 7 AM every weekday morning. Our other computer brands have this feature in BIOS to automatically power them on at a certain time but can't find this in Surface BIOS. Wake-on-LAN comes to mind but it seems only available for Ethernet, not Wifi on Surface devices and we also have the complexity that these devices are connected to a Guest Wifi network separated from any other management network from where we could send WOL packets.

 

Has anyone else solved this?
