auto-power-on enable

Apology for my ignorance to raised up this kind of query.

Regarding with HP "Automatic-Power-ON enable/disable" feature w/c can be configured thru iLO & BIOS.
Specifically for a blade 35p server, the default Automatic-Power-ON is "ENABLE".
Here goes my question, is there any other reason or logical explanation that can be merited for these feature aside from being convenient for neither physically pushing the power button nor virtually powering ON thru iLO when the server rebooted unexpectedly?

---regards,

Re: auto-power-on enable

The main idea is that the blades are powered on automatically when you power on the enclosure.

The real reason is so that on insertion the blade will power up and PXE boot and will thus be discovered by RDP.
