    When did we decide on such a gay initiation? I like the old one better where we help the new guy out.

    Here is an overview for Wake-on-LAN I found.
    http://support.solarwinds.net/Help/W...n/Overview.htm

    It is too bad there isn't a way to hardwire that. You would think that some little piece of hardware would be made for servers that need WOL when the network is down. It would also be pretty need if you could run the WOL with a wireless card/bridge so that you would remote admin your carputer from a desktop inside.

    Good luck.

    I second that. Someone here is getting a little out of hand, and is becoming more of an annoyance than a member.

    Hazing the new guy aside...

    Moose, Thanks for the link, it really got me thinking. Not that this will realy help "pro" but still -

    If you have a PC that supports WOL, and you cable it to a Wireless access point like linksys wet11, or wap11 - you could ten remote power on your PC from anywhere on your wired /wifi network. of course , you would have to hard wire some power for the wap, (the wap11 is rated for 5vdc, 2 amps, but I doubt it draws that much)

    Of course you could get a remote start unit for the car for about 75 bucks, and wire the pc to the ignition line. Maybe someone has a use for it...

    Reviving an old thread:

    I have successfully implemented a wake-up by wiring switched 12 volts to the ring indicator input on my COM port and enabling wake on modem in my PC bios. In my case, the switched 12 volts is initiated by my VW head unit.

    Link? Pics? Instructions?

    My dad is putting a laptop in his car under his seat and if we can wire up something to do that it would be much better/easier than trying to solder a push-switch to the laptop and find some easy way to disconnect it so he can take the laptop out!

    I am using a laptop in my ride and would welcome a way to not have to push the power button when I get in the car.

    Grrr, this sucks...its hard to believe that its so impossible to implement this feature. I'm almost about to scrap the laptop idea and start buying EPIA parts.
