!! Because of the guy in the comments who said that it doesn't appear in the app list: This is a WIDGET! Widgets are in the widgets list, not in the app list !!
if you have any problems feel free to write me an email (post@tommy-wurzbacher.de), I will help you. I have no possibility to answer your ratings if you have any questions, so write me an email.

This widget allows you to remotely start and shutdown your Windows computer.

There's no software running on your pc required, but it need some configuration (see below), so this App is not for computer newbies!

Important: To be able to start your computer remotely you must have activated Wake-On-LAN in your BIOS. The PC must be connected via cable. It does not work with computers using WiFi!

To remotely shutdown your PC, your firewall must configured to allow WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation). If you're not sure if it is, go to your Windows firewall settings and create a new inbound rule, choose predefined and select WMI. In the next window select all. If you have troubles doing this you can set up the firewall settings via the command line: Logged in as an admin-user press win+r and type cmd. A command line window should pop up. Type these commands:

netsh firewall set service RemoteAdmin enable [ENTER]
netsh firewall add portopening protocol=tcp port=135 name=DCOM_TCP135 [ENTER]
netsh firewall add allowedprogram program=%windir%\system32\wbem\unsecapp.exe name=WMI [ENTER] netsh firewall add allowedprogram program=%windir%\system32\dllhost.exe name=Dllhost [ENTER]

This configures your firewall manually.
Also the remote registry service and the remote procedure call (RPC) service must be running on your pc: press win+r on your keyboard while logged in as an admin-user, type services.msc and press enter. Look for RemoteRegistry, double click, select start type automatic, press start and finish by clicking ok. That's it.

If you have trouble shutting down your, please turn off the user account control (UAC). Otherwise look here how to configure WMI access with UAC enabled:

Still having trouble shutting down your computer?
It looks like on some 64bit systems the ownership of an registry key is wrong.
Go the registry and find the key
right click it, go to permissions -> advanced and change the owner from trusted installer to the group administrators.

if it still doesn't work please write me an mail to tommy@wurzbacher.org

I spend much effort in my apps, so feel free to support me and donate some $$ via PayPal to tommy@wurzbacher.org

Note: This app uses the free j-interop (http://j-interop.org) and wakeonlan (http://www.moldaner.de/wakeonlan/) APIs.

    It can't handle lower case letters in the mac address field. That's why I couldn't paste in my mac address from clipboard... No 'next' button, I have to point in the next field. WOL should work on any computer. Maybe it's possible to make this widget 'turn off' Linux too?

    Startup works great but shutdown does not work. Followed instructions very carefully but still nothing!

    Take time to follow the instructions and both shutdown and start up work without fault.
