Program to remotely Power On a PC over the internet
In order for Wake-on-LAN to work, parts of the network interface need to stay on. This consumes a small amount of standby power, much less than normal operating power. Disabling wake-on-LAN when not needed, can therefore vary slightly reduce power consumption on computers that are switched off but still plugged into a power socket.
Wake-on-LAN (WoL) is an Ethernet or token ring computer networking standard that allows a computer to be turned on or awakened by a network message.
- The message is usually sent to the target computer by a program executed on a device connected to the same local area network, such as a smartphone.
- It is also possible to initiate the message from another network by using subnet directed broadcasts or a WOL gateway service.
- Equivalent terms include wake on WAN, remote wake-up, power on by LAN, power up by LAN, resume by LAN, resume on LAN and wake up on LAN.
