You need to be more specific. But, if you mean what it sounds like you mean, then there is no way to do what you want. A computer will only boot based on user input or a user/manufacturer defined schedule. If you know when power is going to be restored, you could try to set up a boot schedule. This is usually a BIOS option, so I don't know how to do it with a Mac Mini. If I knew how, believe me I would have done it with mine.
