So I'm trying to get Wake On Lan to work for my living room PC, and haven't been able to have any luck so far.  I'm using the Android app "PC Auto Waker" and configured it to my MAC address.  I made sure to enable both "Power on by PCI/PCI-E devices" & "Power on by external modems" in my BIOS.  I also checked all 3 boxes under Power Management for my network adapter's settings, plus enabled both "wake on magic packet" and "wake on pattern match".

It has no problem waking up from Sleep Mode when I use the app, but does nothing when I try to power it on with the app.  Any ideas how to resolve this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi, I am not too sure about what you are meaning by "Power on", if you mean a full reboot as if pushing the power button, it will not work and there is nothing that can as the system is completely off. Wake on LAN can only work when the computer is in either sleep or hibernation modes.

Ah okay, thanks for the info.  I was looking for a way to power the PC on (like hitting the power button) while sitting on the couch, since I've got a remote for the TV and wireless keyboard.  Guess I'll just have to get up to turn it on.  :)
