Add this app to your lists
Sitting on your couch wanting to watch some videos and realize that your XBMC server is not powered up?

Sitting at your kitchen table wanting to listen to some tunes and realize that your music server is fast asleep?

Whatever the reason for needing to wake up a sleeping computer, this is the app for you! This app allows you to send magic packets (wake on LAN packets) to sleeping computers to let them know it's time to wake up!

You can save multiple computers (or other internet connected devices) as targets, so they can be awoken with minimal movement - just a single press!

Shortcuts can even be created on your home screen for specific computers, allowing you to wake up your computers without looking away from that beautiful weather widget!

Technical notes:
This app requires that wake on LAN is enabled for your device.

It uses a Cards UI and is Holo themed, so it fits perfectly with Android 4+.

For those asking for Tasker integration: This can be accomplished with the use of AutoShortcut, a Tasker plugin. Just install it and select Wake On Lan ICS+, then setup your shortcut.

Dev note:
If you use this app, please leave honest feedback in the form of a review! If you have issues with the app, please contact me first via email, and I will try to help you resolve the issue.

    It requires reentering MAC address each time. Deal breaker. Since it seems abandoned too, I'm uninstalling.

    Does exactly what it says. The widget is perfect, one click to wake up my PC

    Great app and easy to use. Only problem is the card view... Deleted my first creation on accident (no warning!). It should be something like a tap hold menu. Also I love the display of card view but have to disable it *sad*. Please fix the swipe delete because card view is so beautiful.

    Great app that works, but I keep accidentally deleting my profiles :( Please make it less sensitive or give an undo option!

    I like the simple design, but the interface is too difficult to use. Editing a record requires you save AND send packet, which isn't always good. The MAC address should not require colons, and should allow paste/clone. It works as advertised, but also has crashed a couple of times during testing, so I'll look for something better.
