Wake On LAN -logmein

How to Wake a Computer in Sleep Mode or Powered Off Using Wake On LAN
When all requirements are met, you will be able to use Wake On LAN to switch on a computer that is in sleep mode (PC and Mac) or powered off (PC).
Review this checklist to ensure that you will be able to use the Wake On LAN feature.
  •  Is there at least one other computer on the same network that is both powered on and running LogMeIn Free or Pro?
  •  Is Wake On LAN enabled on the host?
    • From the host, open LogMeIn and follow this path: Options > Preferences > Advanced SettingsUnder Wake On LAN, make sure that Enable 'Wake On LAN' from sleep and power off is selected.

    Can't access this feature? If LogMeIn was installed by an administrator or via an Installation Link from LogMeIn Central, your administrator may have restricted your access to this feature. Contact your administrator for more information.
  •  Do you want to wake a PC that is powered off?
    • For a Windows host 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, usuallyWake On LAN from S5.
  •  Do you want to wake a Mac?
    • Enable the following setting: System preferences > Energy saver > Options tab > Wake for Ethernet network administrator access.
    • Confirm that the computer is on a wired network. Wake On LAN is not supported for Mac hosts on a wireless network.
    • Confirm that the Mac is in sleep mode and not powered off. You cannot wake a Mac that is powered off.
  •  Is the host in a supported sleep mode?
    • Stand-by, sleep, or hibernation (ACPI specification S3 or S4).
All set? Any computer in your account that is ready for Wake On LAN will show the Switch on this computer button. Click the button to wake the computer. It may take several minutes for the computer to wake.
