Wake550 allows you to wake a sleeping computer from over a LAN. Simply type the
MAC Address into the dialog box labeled "Hardware Address". To find the MAC Address,
use the "Network Utility"
program found in the Utilities folder on the target machine, assuming it is running
Mac OS X. The different MAC Addresses are listed under the info tab. Theoretically
the program should wake Windows machines as well, assuming the Windows machine
has a Wake-On-LAN compatible ethernet card. It will not wake a computer that is only
connected to the network through Airport, as the Airport antenna of the target machine
will power down while asleep.
A Service Menu Item is included with this program. To use it select a list of
MAC Addresses seperated by a single character (it shouldn't matter whether this
character is a return, space, semi-colon, or other such seperator). It will send the
wake message to each of those machines.
This program uses the perl script
Documentation for the perl script is available here.
