An alternative would be:
(I'm going to tell you the basics cause I don't know your hardware and router)
Well first of all, you have to go to your BIOS settings and enable Wake on Lan after that reboot,
- Go to device manager
- Network cards
- right click on your network card and properties
- Power management
- tick all options
Now we're going to port forward port 9
To do that, you have to go to your router setting
and Port forwarding
Name: WOL (anything)
Port from 9 to 9
Protocol : TCP
after that i recommend you to use this app to Wake your pc cause it automatically finds your ip and mac address.
Don't hesitate to ask questions;)
The easiest route would probably be to just prevent it from going to sleep automatically in the first place. You should be able to disable that in the power management settings.
If you want to keep the auto sleep enabled though, you could look into WakeOnLAN functionality if your machine supports it. It's technically really only meant to work for local networks, but depending on your router you may be able to assign your PC a static IP address and then set up port forwarding to trigger it remotely. There are a number of apps that will let you send the wake on lan packet. I've used this one for android, and they have some info on how to set it up to work remotely: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
You want "Wake on LAN" supported and enabled on your computer
I'm making a couple assumptions here:
From there try using a WOL packet tester while your computer is on. It'll basically tell you if it received a WOL or not. From there you can either troubleshoot the device configuration or the way your sending them. I recommend this app as it has a nice widget.
I've made this mistake before, if you receive a packet using the tester, it is NOT a routing problem, it's a bad device configuration. The packet will get to that interface everytime as long as the device is configured properly and your sending to the broadcast address on the same subnet (NOT the devices IP address).
I use this Wake On Lan app to turn on my PC when I wake up and use Teamviewer through my miniPC as a passthrough for doing the same then I am not home and need remote access to it at the time.
There would be a setting in the BIOS of your computer if it supports it (I think most, if not all, PCs do these days) It depends on the make/model etc of your PC as to how you would find it. The OS shouldn't make a difference.
Then I use this app to send the wake signal when I want the PC to turn on.
I got it working today, following some instructions from here:
To wake up your PC, you need it to be connected to ethernet, not WiFi. (I have my PC connected to the ethernet port on my mesh unit, which seems to work.)
Then I installed a Wake-On-LAN client for Android, and I can wake up my PC :)
I have found a solution for turn the TV on.
First I have to say (again) it is so stupid and frustrating that the own LG app can not do this and we have to search for external solutions. "Regular" have no change with this!
Solution for turn on tv: Use WOL (Wake on Lan)
I have used this app that supports Takers and it is pretty straightforward : Wake On Lan
After add your device on the App, you just have to create a task calling his plugin and select your device.
I have to continuing searching to find out a way to start an specific app in the TV.
You can use http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wake_on_lan.html on your machine to remotely wake it up when not home or use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=en when home from your phone once you have it setup on that machine via bios settings and for the ethernet settings in windows.
I use the former using a minipc that I setup as a headless server that is always on and the latter through my phone to turn on my laptop and desktop when I need to use them esp the desktop when I wake up lol
>Bashed my head with trying to make a wake on lan task which would be made with a shell command, no luck.
Don't know about the shell command but there is an app called Wake on Lan with a Tasker pugin that let's you send WOL packages :)
You mean a widget that send the WOL package?
I personally use the pro version of unified remote that let me create a custom widget with the WOL action.
Hope that was what you wanted.
Edit: here is a free app.
To turn on my PC I use an app from the playstore; wakeonlan.
This app conveniently also has a tasker plugin which can be used to turn on a single device and/or a bookmarked group. Fair warning: only works when connected to the same network as your PC. A way to counter this is to set up a VPN connection on e.g. a Raspberry Pi which allows you to connect to the network even on mobile data.
To set it up, you'll need a few things:
1. Set up a static IP on your PC
2. Go to cmd and type in ipconfig and find the adapter with the IP you set up
3. Go to the app and add a device
4. Static IP in the device op field and use the MAC obtained with the command separated with the ':' char (without quotes).
5. (Optional) download an app on your PC to listen for magic packets and run it to check the configuration
Last but not least, set up a tasker task with Plugin -> Wake On Lan and make sure it runs when your conditions are met.
To turn off the PC, I installed an app on the oc which creates a web API that you can send POST commands to within Tasker. I just can't remember the name right now.
I don't think the app can do this, but it's not too hard to set up.
I had mine set up pretty similar but used this app;
Personalmente l'unico modo in cui riesco a usarlo è con l'app Android Wake On Lan e mettendo come ip destinazione un DDNS che punta alla connessione di casa.
I am using UpSnap. https://github.com/seriousm4x/UpSnap
Which provides a Web console to wake machines on the same network as where it is running. It also allows wake up and shutdown / sleep machines on demand or a schedule.
I have this externally facing protected by 2FA so I can access remotely.
I've also got an app on my Android phone called Wake On Lan. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
This will only work when my phone is on local network as I haven't done any port forwarding for this.
Hope this helps.
No. The CPU is not executing instructions in sleep state. Resuming from sleep is handled by your motherboard.
If your laptop supports it, you may be able to enable Wake-on-LAN in the BIOS, which would allow you to use an app like this to wake the computer.
The one made by Mike Webb.
I use a wake on Lan app on the phone to wake my PC. Has a widget on my home screen that I tap on the way into my house to wake the PC.
I can't find the app I used to use.
But basically I would enable my pc's bios to WOL (Wake On Lan). Then send a WOL Packet with an app. Something like this one.
Same for me. Just put the server to sleep using the Dynamix plugin once I'm done using it, then use Wake On Lan on my Android to wake the server when I need. Works great!
These are the ones I used to use on my phone:
It's been a while so I can't really remember why I ever switched from one to the other.
If find them on APKPure and install them through SideQuest.
Worst case scenario, you can use your phone instead of another PC. A quick Google search shows there are similar options for iOS, if that's what you use.
First, you need to be connected via ethernet, I guess. Then enable Wake on Lan/Magic Packet from adapter settings. Then install an app and configure your pc. You can create home widget too!
Some people managed to integrate google assistant with those
> leaving their desktops running indefinitely?
You would hope that EnergyStar or the Euro equivalent would help ensure there is plenty of support for this.
meanwhile I found this which looks worth trying
Tasker doesn't have wake on LAN built in, but there's a lot of tasker compatible apps on the okay store, like this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
Use that and a WAIT/SLEEP command in tasker. Then start the app. Should be pretty simple!
You can use tasker for wake on lan or just use a shortcut directly to your pc or laptop using this App:
You then configure it in Pujie black as a tap action under shortcuts.
Get wake on LAN working with an app on your phone such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
To set up that up your laptop needs to be on first then search for it in that app
If it doesn't work with that app you should check dells documentation
OS is WIndows 10.
IP is reserved in PiHole.
At home I have successfully used an Android app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=en_GB to wake on lan
Whilst connected to VPN I have tried the same app and tried using Etherwake after SSHing to the Pi. I also installed team viewer on my home PC and tried using it's Wake on Lan options via the team viewer app on my phone and via the team viewer app on an external PC. Neither worked.
Not to steal your thunder but for those who don't have the hardware OP listed but do have Tasker on Android, there is a way to do the same thing using your Android device to carry out the operation.
The logic is very similar. First find a Wake on Lan (WOL) app with Tasker integration and set it up accordingly. I use this one.
Use OP's instructions for IFTTT to setup Google Assistant --> Pushbullet communication.
In Tasker, make a profile: Event (Receive a Push if I receive a note containing the text "___" from anyone) > Action WOL app.
Wake on lan widget is the only one I have. I can wake my laptop from anywhere in the house. Kind of a very specific need there though.
I used to have an app that did this. It booted my computer whenever my phone connected to my home network.
You can actually use Wake on LAN on the Steam Link, that might be something to look into. I haven't used it personally but I'd imagine you could wake it from some device on the network.
Just a quick google shows this: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
If you are using a Ethernet cable, it will most likely support WoL. You can follow the steps here. To enable WoL on your computer, follow the first part. After that, you can continue with the same tutorial if you have another computer available, or you can download this app on your Android phone to test it.
Sometimes you may need to also enable WoL in your BIOS, so you can also check that out if it doesn't work using the tutorial above. Good luck!
I know in your update you cut out your phone from the equation, but if someone wanted to do this and cut out the raspberry pi, the app Wake on Lan (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan) has tasker integration, so you can have your phone send the wake command (assuming your phone is on the same network as your PC).
Wake On Lan
My computer is insanely fast, but my monitors take a few moments to come on. I setup WOL in my BIOS, pulled the MAC, and created a widget on my phone to just tap, and my computer boots while I head over to it.
tcpdump shows incoming and outgoing traffic on the interface. man tcpdump
The point is to make sure freenas us actually receiving the traffic. Can't wake up if the request isn't being sent properly.
Also, is freenas on the same subnet as your wol requestor?
Wol is tricky. I just started messing with it myself and I've had good luck with this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan which has tasker integration.
I use an Android app called Wake On LAN and it works well. I only have it set up for LAN -- you'll need to have a router that supports WOL from the outside to do it over the internet.
Question for you: do you watch movies/videos with a controller? Which program do you use?
Also, wake on LAN is essential for in home streaming, as is chrome remote desktop
Wake-on-LAN. Your computer's BIOS/EFI must have this setting enabled, and your PC must be connected to ethernet (not WiFi). There are apps for Android that send the magic packet.
A non-DD-WRT solution, albeit somewhat limited to when you are at home, is to use a programme on your phone such as Wake On Lan. Simple to use and can be configured for multiple targets.
I just use Wake On Lan from my phone to turn on the PC over the network and have http://magicpacket.free.fr/ setup on the MiniPC to turn on the PC when I am not home and need to remote into it.
That's weird. Try using another WOL app to see if that works. Something tells me that the issue is with unified Remote. This this one. Wake on LAN by Mike Webb
You need to set wake-on-lan in your bios, then install Wake On LAN on your phone. Turn on your computer as you walk toward it!
You can even get really fancy, and set it up with tasker and the like :D
What phone or tablet have you got? as I use http://www.monect.com/ via my android phone for my minipc when I need to use it.
Also as for powering on the systems I use I have Wake on Lan and to turn off I just mouse to shutdown.
I use Teamviewer to remote into a dedicated RDP machine and use ultravnc from there when I need to to remote into a remote machine for say my work :P
This is the app I use on my phone with WOL enabled in the router and PC bios settings https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=en
You would need to be on a local connection. Connect your phone with wifi and if you have android use this app. You can just search for your pc and itl save the mac id .
Bios i have z87 so it shouldnt be too different , enable Power on by pci/pcie. Some z97 boards say you should also Under Advanced, enable the network Stack and the set Ipv4/Ipv6 PXE Support as desired. Then see if the wake on magic packet is shown in device manager
ALso if youre on windows 8.1 Disable the hybrid shutdown mode
This is my own personal favorite. It has a slick design and works really well. What you have to do is find your homes public ip address. This will differ from your computer's individual ip address. You can find this by going to a site like icanhazip.com. Put this number into wake on lan under hostname. Then find your computer's mac address and individual ip address and put these in wake on lan under mac address and device ip respectively. Bear in mind that depending on your setup, your router might hand your computer a different ip address each time it is shut down, so for the most consistent results it's best to set a static ip on your computer. You can easily find this procedure on Google. Next you need to specify a port in wake on lan, I use 3389. Access your routers settings and go to the port forwarding section. Open port 3389. Lastly open the settings for your network adapter, and under the power management tab select the option that says something to the effect of "allow this device to wake the computer". If you have problems with the computer waking by itself you will also want to tick the option to only wake when a magic packet is sent. Accept the changes and you're good to go. Now more matter where you are you can wake your computer from your phone. Just launch wake on lan on your phone and trigger your computer to wake. I use this in conjunction with chrome remote desktop, and have full access to my computer wherever I am. Good luck, and hit me up if you have any questions or need clarification.
This wake-on-lan app seems to have Tasker support:
Or, switch to an automation app which has built-in support for it:
Linkme: Automate, Automagic
whenever I connect to any of the home wifi networks (2.4 ghz, 5 ghz or extender), set %Home to 1, %Work to 0.
Connect to any work wifi, set %Home to 0, %Work to 1
If connecting to any home network when %Work is 1, push message (via pushbullet) to my gf that I'm home and start my PC via Wake on Lan.
If connected to my Moto 360 or Pebble, set %Watch to 1, exit task set %Watch to 0.
If %Watch ~ 1 or %Home ~ 1, disable lock screen via Secure Settings.
If both are 0, enable PIN lock screen.
Maybe something like this will work for you? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
You can install wake-on-lan: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=en_US
See if you can configure it to Wake on LAN - WoL, settings are typically in the BIOS. Then use an app like this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan to cut it on.
Set up Wake on LAN, and get an app to use it
To add on to the other comment, this wake on lan app has plugins for Tasker so you can automate the PC waking that way:
That's the app I'm using and it works.
Ill see about getting the packet captures in a bit
Did you figure it out? The app is https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
Yes there is even for hipster phone
Managed to do what you described.
This app to create a one press widget that send the magic packet(later add the functionality to quick settings): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
Then you need app that either create a notification with quick settings capabilities that let you add the widget functionality or an app that let you customize the existing quick settings row and add the widget.
Free and no root: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.painless.pc
It would look like this: http://imgur.com/L3f0clO
Or if you have root: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quinny898.app.customquicksettings
That app would customize your stock quick settings and let you add the widget (PRO VERSION ONLY).
It would look like this: http://imgur.com/pQU6Yxs
Hope that helps you.
I'll give you a quick rundown below.
I have glued a NFC tag under the area i swipe with my phone, just a cheap random one.
Then I downloaded the app Wake On Lan and configured it and my PC correctly.
Then I use Bixby Routines & SmartThings to make everything start all at once.
You can use Wake on LAN app which has Tasker integration.
Works well and has tasker integration so you can trigger it any way you like
This one. Very good and easy to use.
Use this app :) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=pt_PT&gl=US
It has a Tasker plugin.
Use WOL apps or yatse to turn Kodi on https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
This app i found wake on lan
I've used https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan for years, but there might be other better choices.
I use this one: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
Wake on lan
Are you talking about this one https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
I've had success with this Android app for Wake on LAN, not sure about Alexa though: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan&hl=en_US
I like this one personaly https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co.uk.mrwebb.wakeonlan
If you use this Wake On Lan app it doesn't open the app completely so it removes the need for one of those.
not a morning routine – this runs when I get home (connected to home wifi) from work (or just from out anywhere).
disables pattern lock (secure settings)
checks if location variable is set to 'out' or 'work', if so, do:
disable bluetooth (shell command – normal tasker bluetooth control doesn't seem to work in Lollipop for me)
wake up my PC (using Wake on LAN)
checks if screen is on or off and sets a variable ("locked") accordingly
unlock the screen via AutoInput if variable "locked" is 1
set the clipboard as "I'm home"
perform separate task to message my SO that I'm home:
autoinput to select her name
autoinput to paste the clipboard ("I'm home") into the Hangouts chat box
autoinput to click send
Secure Settings action to activate shortcut for last app
re-lock screen if variable "locked" was set to 1 previously
Your PC needs to keep it's IP - so you know where to send the packets.
To setup reserved DHCP - under setup DHCP reservation and add your PC.
For the Android site I like this WOL app - searches the LAN for devices and can add them with IP/MAC.
If it doesn't work also try waking up the PC from Standby/Hybernation modes.
