I just put together a new desktop with MSI B450M Pro-M2 Max motherboard. I use this PC for my work and let it run all day. I need to make it automatically turn off at midnight, then wake up by itself at 6am in the morning.

I know how to set up Windows task to turn off the PC automatically, but cannot figure how to set up the BIOS to turn on the PC by itself. My old PC used legacy BIOS and I was able to do it. This motherboard uses MSI Click BIOS 5, which I am not familiar with. Here's the link to the BIOS manual:

Can someone give me instructions how to do it? Thanks.
 
I do not believe MSI's BIOS' have that feature. I haven't seen it on any BIOS for some time now. It probably creates a potential security hole so maybe that's why. It's also pretty much unnecessary on modern systems as they boot up in just a few seconds, especially if you enable fast start up and hybrid sleep.
