Can Alexa turn on my PC?


I have had 2 alexas for a while, I recently moved one to where I have my PC. I wonder if I was able to turn on my PC with my Alexa. I had installed 3 smart outlets in my room. (I didn't get the ones you can plug in, I installed my own outlets) This didn't work because I still had to press the power button. My brother is able to connect his xbox to his alexa.

Check your motherboard BIOS and see if there's an option to turn the PC back on after AC power loss (or something along those lines). When you turn the smart outlets back on it will automatically start your PC. There may be a better way to do this, but this will work for you now.
