Hi all.....sorry in advance for the newbie questions. I'm setting up a remote observatory and will be using Expert Scheduler.

Here's are the first of what I'm sure will be many questions.
Do I have to leave my remote computer on all the time?? I'm missing something I think. It seems to me that I would want my computer to start up about sunset and then start monitoring things...make a decision to proceed, etc. Obviously the computer has to be on for this decision to be made...and I can see having it run through the night.....then shutting down after morning flats, etc.

How is this done??
