Task Scheduler can turn on your computer

I don’t use my desktop very often, but I have some scripts that run every day to scrap info from various web sites. I don’t want to leave it on all the time. It turns out in “Task Scheduler” under the “Conditions” tab there’s a setting available to turn on the computer to run the tasks: “Wake the computer to run this task”. Now I can let my desktop sleep and it will wake periodically to run my tasks.
