Access files on sleeping computers.

Overview

WakeOnLan discovers all other computers in your LAN, and enables you to wake them up by clicking a button. If your remote computer is a Mac you can put it asleep too.

Scheduled Wake Up Calls
In addition to timer based wake up calls, each computer can be scheduled to be woken up frequently at a day of the week (or, weekdays or weekends only) and time of your choice. For example, schedule wake up calls each Sunday night at 04:00AM for backup.

WakeOnLan Dashboard Widget
You need to wakeup some other computer quickly, but don't want to start the WakeOnLan application? Just press F12 and use the WakeOnLan Widget. Simply select the computer to be woken up and click on the sun. Press F12 again and you're done.

New for all Mac OS X versions: Dock Menu
Faster access for everyone. Click and hold the WakeOnLan icon in the Dock (while WakeOnLan running), and select any computer to be woken up or put asleep directly from the menu. It doesn't get any simpler.

Fantastic little app. “Do one thing and do it well.” It does absolutely everything a complete WakeOnLAN app should do - and not one thing more. Perfect. It would be great if you could add support for the Bonjour Sleep Proxy Service. It's the technology that Snow Leopard's “Wake on Wireless” uses. It's an open protocol and shouldn't be too hard to implement: Service description: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_Proxy_Service Source code: http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/mDNSResponder/mDNSResponder-212.1/mDNSMacOSX/ Exact protocol (really simple stuff): http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-cheshire-edns0-owner-option-00 In practice, supporting this would also allow for waking over VPN and waking over Internet (if the router forwards broadcast packets from WAN to LAN).

I am using Mojave 10.14 and when I launch your application it is advising me that it will not be supported in future Mac OS updates. Will you be upgrading WakeOnLan?

Works great on my Mac Pro. Woke my Windows 10 PC on the first try. I now keep it in my dock. Thanks to the developer.

Using it for the first time to wakeup a remote MAC. Works like a charm and, on top of wakening or putting to sleep other computers, it allows to add computers manually, to classify and to group favorite devices, as well as to scan the entire network. Unfortunately the classification for the home computer (the one on which the application is running) is not preserved after a relaunch.

Love it. Very simple ui, auto-detects computers on the network, is smart about what "delete" from the list means, free! This is exactly what I was looking for.

When you sleep a computer, the wireless hardware powers down. There's no way to contact it to wake it up.

nothing seems to be waking my computers anymore. One day they were waking, the next they weren't.
