Default Re: Remote PC Turn On?

Yes, you can. You have to set it in the BIOS. Also depends on whether your mobo supports it or not.

Mine does and when I first set up a wireless network on this computer, the computer would just turn on by itself when I shut it down. It detects the wifi signal and decides to turn on. So I went into the BIOS and disabled the "wake on something... (lan? maybe)". Now I have no problems with it.

Use my advice at your own risk.

My rig:
CoolerMaster Centurion 5
SamSung 20" LCD
Intel E6750 @ 2.66Ghz
Gigabyte p35-ds3r
Patriot Extreme 2gb 4-4-4-12
Sapphire X1950XT 256mb
Samsung 500gb @ 7200
PSU Xclio GreatPower 550W
Samsung DVD Burner
Logitec X-230 2.1
