Warning, this may not work on some motherboards that does not support this feature. Please test your rig when you are around and set time like 7 minutes and se if they will power on again after that time.
    • We are also planning to make sleep process fully automatic so you could set time range in which rig should be powered off (if this feature will work on most rigs then we will proceed, please vote up this feature to show us that you want it :)
    • eye icon is not changed to (i) icon which is more obvious
