Hello I have setup a VM for my brother and he keeps shutting it off. Sense I'm still new proxmox i was wondering if here was a way i can let it turn back on his VM without having to access all of my stuff the admin area of proxmox?

Hello Joseph,

I see two options.
First one you create a user with limited access to proxmox web interface.
=> (you're looking for "Permission Management, Role and Privileges).
Your brother will be able to log into proxmox webinterface and turn his vm on.

Second you can use rinseaid script to enable vm power on with WOL.
With a script sending WOL, your brother can turn his VM on.
