Geeks With Blogs
urig Tidbits from a .net life

I use this blog as my private (or should I say protected?) "Knowledge Base" repository. Whenever I bump into an issue and successfully resolve it, I'd blog about it for future reference's sake.

This post is the same, except I wasn't the one to resolve the issue, or even bump into it for that matter. That credit goes to Jeff Atwood over at Coding Horror, who wrote a lovely review about "Wake On LAN".

WOL is a bit of tech that's integrated into most modern LAN adapters. Even when your computer in sleep mode, the adapter keeps listening and if you "call" it from another machine in your LAN, it will wake up.

For the finer details on how it works, read Jeff's post. His blog is a gem.
