    Look at the power management API's.

    I was looking at them a week ago but did not find what i
    wanted, wake up the a hard drive across a LAN.

    Wake on Lan if I remember was included.

    Wake on LAN settings

    Does anyone know how to check if a PC is capable of "Wake on LAN"? "Wake on LAN" is when your PC can be powered off and a server sends out a special network broadcast to "wake up" the PCs and power them back on.

    I know some PCs have this setting in the BIOS setup, but I need to find a way to check a PC using a program and I have looked in the WMI sections (including the BIOS sections) and unless I am missing it, I don't see that as an option anywhere.

    Is there anything like a device driver that might get loaded, or a registry setting, or anyplace in windows I can check? (is Windows even aware of this feature since it happens when windows is not around )

    If I can figure out how to check it manually from Windows on my PC, I can setup a program to test the remaining 68000+ PCs. (I don't really want to go in to BIOS setup that many times)

    Even guesses will help at this point.
Working...
