Enabling Auto Power On for the MachineMetrics Gateway

When we ship our Gateway device to your facility, we configure the system to automatically start when power is provided. If the power to the gateway is disrupted, the device will automatically start when it is restored. In some of our earlier installations, that option was not enabled. Follow the steps below to enable Auto Power On on your Gateway.

  1. Plug a monitor and keyboard into the Gateway device.
  2. Press the power button and hold the F2 key on your keyboard.
  3. Navigate to the "Advanced" tab with the right arrow key.
  4. Select "ACPI Settings" and press Enter.
  5. Select "PWRON After PWR-Fail" with the down arrow key and press Enter.
  6. Choose "Always On" and press Enter.
  7. Press the Esc key to leave "ACPI Settings".
  8. Use the right arrow key to navigate to the "Save & Exit" tab.
  9. Select "Save Changes and Reset".
  10. When prompted, choose "Yes" and press the Enter key.
  11. Disconnect the keyboard and mouse.
