I only have three computers that will ever need it.  A script might be = the
way to go.  Then I can just have a shortcut for each one and turn = them on
quickly.

What is involved with making a script to do it?

Maybe Ray has one lying around that does this and he would be kind = enough
to share it.

Greg, there are a bunch of utilities to do it, plus you can script it = with
VBScript... Note that some system BIOS' have a on / off switch for WOL =
that you might want to check out too. =20

My biggest disappointment with WOL is that the vendors have not built = WOL
into their products.  I'd love to see it in a backup suite so I could = just
tell my folks to turn their PC's off in the evening... Imagine the
electricity savings if I was able to turn off a few thousand PC's an
evening.

How exactly do I use Wake on LAN to actually make it work or am I =3D
misunderstanding what it does.

Thanks!
