Help With Wake On Lan


Recommended Posts

hello all hak5 staff / members / hosts

i have a hp compaq nc6320 that i want to use as a project

system running windows xp sp2

my question is i have wake on lan enabled and it works i use a program called mc-wol and it wakes up my laptop

but heres the problem i have to actually use the laptop keyboard to wake up the display...

i cannot seem to find out why i cannot get the display to wake up without a key press / mouse movement / mouse key press

i use real vnc to see the screen cause the laptops screen is dead well 25-45% dead cause of a major crack in it

so is there anybody out there that might be able to help me

I didn't know you have to switch on your monitor, in order to remotely connect into your computer. It's not like you are sitting in front of the computer.

On the other hand, is the monitor physically switched off or is it on stand by?
