What happens if you try?
Put the laptop to sleep and call it via WiFi, after you have set all BIOS-options the way you think they should be.
No Luck :-(
Tried that earlier...no luck. I'm also wondering how ill actually be able to log in as well because the remote keyboard and trackpad won't be active either. So once I get passed turning the pc on, ill hit another hurdle and be stuck at the login.
When woken up, the PC should do an autologon, then - in the startup commands of that user - start whatever it's supposed to do when being woken up. Since there is nobody around to type or touch anything on the local keyboard, it all has to be automatic.
re: re: login
is it possible to remotely login to a computer with multiple users? i have 3 accounts on my computer and mine is password protected is there anyway i can get around this? can i set up some sort of default account? because they wont be using it remotely.
You may have to tell what app this is.
But all the ones I use such as VNC, Logmein and such have no such issue. Are you guessing what will happen or did you actually see the issue?
What I'm using...
I'm using an app called "Remote-X". Basically now I've given up on finding a way to wake on LAN without an Ethernet cord and just plugged one in. So now that I'm able to wake on LAN, the app doesn't connect to my computer directly after boot, I get stuck at the log in screen. Maybe I'm just doing this the hard way but the way I've got my set up is: I've got my LAN connected to my Laptop (to boot it) then I've got my computer connected to my TV (to use as a monitor). I really just want to use my phone to boot my laptop, as well as use it as a trackpad and keyboard. It will boot, but I have to log in via the laptop on my username to get the app's software to link because the iPhones keyboard and trackpad aren't connected yet.
So it's not working at all.
It's possible you have more work to get done. Many routers have firewalls and if over WiFi you see it differ from the wired connection. I've noted this in the CNET Networking forum stickies so for now I'd re-examine the firewalls in all things.
Nope still not working.
I don't know how to actually enable things through the fire wall. I found the program for the app under windows firewall, now what do I do?
I noted that the router can have such too.
It's a lot to absorb so give it time.
Sorry I'm a newbie to the forum..
I can't seem to locate what notes you were referring to. Perhaps you can you provide the link? Thanks, you've been very helpful.
I've done some searching and here's what ive got...
I havent tried it yet but maybe i can just create a new task in the task scheduler to run the program before i log in...problem is i cant quite find the exe that runs the "Remote-X" desktop program from the program files im not sure if i should just run the whole program folder as an action.
Secondly, ive noticed that i have to manually turn on the computer every other time i wake because the settings to wake on LAN keep getting disabled after i turn off the computer like this.
In order to enable WOL i have to check "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" then it enables the other two settings so i check the boxes.
And uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" again so that the network adapter stays on to wake it back up. Why isnt it just staying on? geez this process is so tedious.
Sorry but the forum bottomed out.
I can't guess if that's the name of the remote app but it seems odd to leave that detail out if you need help with the app till now.
Hopefully the app's support will answer if you need to do that.
Here I have used other titles but I do understand how folk want to stick to what they choose.
this is how you do it
you have to send it a "magic packet sender" in order to wake it up try that, i know what im talking about im A+ certified and got high score on exam recently
No its not automatic logins or anything its a remote connection so your keybord on your phone or keyboard or whatever, will work remotely
it is not possible to wake on lan via WiFi
ok for 1 wake on LAN means exactly that if you know what your talking about, LAN standing for Locol Area Network wich is a wired connection so it has to be connected with a ethernet cable to work so no it can not be woke up vie WiFi
I somewhat came up with a solution.
I went through the registry key and added a string for an auto admin log in. Of course security is decreased dramatically but then again, why do i need to put the password in to access my own computer in my home. So now it just skips the log in screen completely when starting up from a wake, and logs into my account instantly which in turn runs the apps server exe.
