Wake on LAN
Why Use is Wake-on-LAN
Just to give you a quick overview of why you would find this useful:
  • On-demand access to files and resources on a network – you don’t have to keep a computer turned all the while.
  • Energy efficiency, you will see a reduction in your utility bills since you don’t have to keep your system on all the time.
  • Great for remotely managing a computer, so you can access a computer that might be across the room or upstairs.
How does it work?
With wake-on-LAN enabled, your computer will “listen” for a “magic packet” containing its MAC address while it is in sleep mode. The computer can be woken up by sending it a magic packet from another device on the network.
