Default Any way to turn a pc on via network?

Hey,

I don't think you can, but i was wondering if it was at all possible to turn a pc on using some sort of CMD command or something from another pc on the network....my router has the computer lit up...so the network is there, is this possible?

If not...can someone please tell me how i can remotely wake up the computer from standby?

Thanks,

Matt

Thanks,

But i can't seem to get the pc to power on, nor can i find any settings in the BIOS that would relate? I was thinking maybe it doesn't support it, but if it didn't, would the router light up "3" (which its plugged into), wouldnt the light turn off?
