I have a desktop machine that is running as a file server of sorts for my office. I have it configured to shut the computer down after the battery level reaches 20%. My office has a fairly capable router that is designed to send WOL Magic Packets to this computer every 5 minutes to prevent it from ever being turned off if possible.
Here's the question: If the computer shuts down due to the battery being below that level, and it receives a magic packet from the router, I would assume that it will turn back on, even though the battery is still discharged (because the UPS has not yet shut itself off, there is still some juice in it, just not enough to continue running the computer). Is there any way to make it so that the computer will not load the OS until it is plugged in again? I thought that laptops had something that stopped them from trying to boot when the computer was shut down due to low battery, but I'm not sure how to get the same functionality in this desktop form.
I would greatly apprieciate any comments about this!
