Windows 7: Wake PC on RDP connection?

Wake PC on RDP connection?

Is there a way to wake a computer in S3 mode when using RDP? I like my pc to sleep to conserve power, but I need to access my PC from work and I don't want to leave the PC on all day if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance,

Washy

Enable Wake On LAN in BIOS and/or Device Manager.

Down side is that it will wake every single time one of your other networked computers sends something over the network.

Drove me crazy.

That didn't work. It still doesn't wake. I know the settings are correct because my Xbox extenders can wake the pc to connect to windows media center.

Is there a command line with powercfg that may work to enable the RDP program to wake the pc?

I found this great utility that will wake the pc remotely. Works like a charm.
Its called WoL Command Line.

Unless there is a way to do what I want without a bat file, please let me know.

Thanks,

I found that RDP connections would wake up my computers running Windows 7. That was working fine until I joined the computers to a domain. Now I can't wake them. WolCMD is fine as long as you're on your own network. But it won't work going through ASA firewalls and Cisco concentrators.
