    Default H77 automatic restart after power outage

    Hello,

    Most motherboards I've dealt with have a BIOS setting that allows them to automatically power back up after a power outage, but I can't seem to locate this setting in the BIOS for the H77M. If it for some reason doesn't have such a setting I'll be forced to modify the power supply itself so it will always be on whenever AC is present, but I would prefer not to implement such a kluge.

    Thanks,
    Ray

    You could buy a UPS. I have a 750w UPS that should keep things going for an outage of up to a half hour in addition it is connected via USB so it will shutdown the computer before it runs out of power.

    Thank you for your suggestion and yes, I could use a UPS. However, keeping the system running when power fails is not my concern and a hard crash is perfectly fine. My only concern is that when power returns the system automatically attempt start back up. Obviously if the hard crash messes up something the automatic restart is a moot point, but I still want it to at least attempt to restart.

    There should be a Restore on AC/Power Loss under South Bridge Configuration?

    Excellent! That's exactly what I was looking for and it appears to work as expected. Thanks for your help!
