    You can use the Ping command in a batch file or script but I would
    recommend that you use the Sleep command from the Server 2003 Resource
    Kit. Just put a batch file or script (or shortcut to the batch file) in
    your Startup folder and use the sleep command in the batch file delay
    the startup of the application.

    Startup?

    Simplest for individual:
    Batch script with the sleep.exe called to wait for 30 minutes and then the
    command you want to run - where the batch script is called from a scheduled
    task that starts when the computer starts.
