Wake-On-Lan

I didn’t think this is so easy. Following wiki’s instruction:

in order to get WoL to work it is sometimes required to enable this feature on the card. This can be done in Windows from the properties of the network card in the device manager, on the “Power Management” tab. Check “Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby” and then “Only allow management stations to bring the computer out of standby” to make sure it does not wake up on every single network activity that occurs. (I have an exist schedule task to wake up computer, which is disabled by this, so I turned this option off later. )

Downloaded a command tool from depicus to sent out the magic packet. Then, it worked.

I didn’t even have to turn on the Power-On-RingIn feature on my motherboard. Cool!
