Re: Turn Computer on From a Different Room
it't not something that i use, so the only other thing i can do is google logmein wake on lan and this is a thread that refers to their support knowledge base.
How do I wake a computer that is in sleep mode or powered off?
By enabling LogMeIn's Wake on LAN feature, you can turn on a PC or Mac that is in sleep mode, or a PC that is powered off. Follow these steps to ensure that you will be able to use the Wake on LAN feature:
First, make sure that Wake on LAN has been enabled on the host:
From a Windows host: Open LogMeIn and choose Options > Preferences > Advanced Settings. Under Network, make sure that Enable Wake On LAN from sleep and power off is selected.
For a Mac host, enable the following setting: System preferences > Energy saver > Options tab > Wake for Ethernet network administrator access
Please confirm that the host is in a supported sleep mode (stand-by, sleep, or hibernation mode: ACPI specification S3 or S4). For a Windows PC that is powered off (but still plugged in), confirm that Wake on LAN is enabled in the computer's BIOS.
Tip: Consult the user guide of your computer or motherboard to locate the appropriate BIOS switch, (usually Wake on LAN from S5).
Please also confirm that at least one other LogMeIn host on the same LAN is online and available. For a Mac, confirm that the computer is on a wired network. Wake on LAN is not supported for Mac hosts on a wireless network.
When these conditions are met, any computer in your account that is ready to be woken up will show the Switch on this computer button. Click the button to wake the computer. Please allow time for the computer to wake.
Note: The ability for this option to function is dependent on your computer's hardware. Please consult your computer's documentation to confirm compatibility with Wake on LAN features.
