Can you get another computer to wake up and sleep when?

Can you get another computer to wake up and sleep when you press the on button on your computer?
If so, how?

Do you mean to wake up another computer attached to yours?

You can use wake on lan ( Depicus ) somehow with mouse macros I guess.

I know how to use WOL. Wondering if it could be used when I switch on either of my computers the NAS will switch on automatically and carry out a Backup of all files then shutdown automatically without having to be there...

Like madwh said above, you would need to use a Wake on LAN program in conjunction with a mouse macro program.

I know nothing about macros; I suggest you start by Googling mouse macros, or start here: Auto Macro Recorder : Easy-to-use macro recorder, Let computer do boring things for you.

Trouble is I can't get Depicus to work on the network!

I can get it to work via the network (computer to computer) and also via website (internet) to computer. But, I can't get it to work from computer-Internet-computer. Strange innit!

Firewall blocking it?

It's a matter of doing port forwarding correctly and adding a static ARP entry into the router. Without these wake on lan over the Internet is not gonna happen. I suggest buying a dd-wrt compatible router and from there it's pretty easy.
