Re: Need to powerup PowerEdge with out hitting the power...
well in the bios of some machines their is an option to schedule a wakeup time for the PC, and you could also enable Wake On Lan and then wake up the PC remotely from a computer outside of the server room?

If the server is running Windows, you can usually enter safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8 after you press the power switch.
You can also get into the dell utility, which lets you run memory and system tests. To access this, follow the on screen directions during boot up.
Just go into the bios and insert the correct parameters. you shut it off before it could save the settings. Or hit fi on boot and it should take you into the bios and you cand sort it out in there. If you want an easy way, just do a system restore. Start,Programs, accesorys, system tools, system restore, just go back a day or two before you had that issue, and you should be good to go, good luck
Process of elimination? I first thought it may be a power problem but I could not understand the LED flashing (It still maybe a power problem) If you can leave on charge for 4-5 hours more if you can make sure the light is not flashing (That is turn the laptop off at the power switch) Try turning on after being on charge for as long as you can If that does not work it may be the bios with the wrong setting or the Hard Drive is faulty (The more I think about it I think it may the the last issue) Try the other steps first the turn on holding the DELETE button it (I think that is the button to access the bios ) This with work if the Hard is Good or bad)
dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem.
A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful.
Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.
