Wake On LAN

Wake On LAN is a free and open-source software application that enables users to send a Wake-on-LAN signal to other computers in their network, in order to trigger a power management action, namely wake up or shut down. This means that if a computer is powered off, you can send it a signal across your network to quickly turn if back on again – an essential remote control feature.
