With a lot of high capacity drives (and lots of people not making backups!) it will reduce drive failure rates.

and a NAS is not an "always on" device unless you want it to be... NAS stands for something else!! Wink

+1

So I did't have to route my NAS shares via my Linux server Samba.

( using samba share "root reexec" parameter )
"[PH] I thought NAS on 24 hours, why needs "Wake on LAN"?"

Maybe people with NAS in their flat might want sleep at night without listening to howling hard drives and want to kill the NAS for the night.
Killing the NAS with automatic software command for the night in long term comes much cheaper than having it bashed to pieces by baseball bat... (or thrown out of 5th floor window)

RE: Magic Packets? Wake-on-Lan?
+1 for me as well.

Note: With the current rate of feature requests being provided, I would be surprised if this feature ever saw the light of day... confused

My cgi needs a little tidying up, but as an extra line in the "fancy" telnet.html script from the gbpvr wiki it fires the server up fine.

I was a little disappointed that the PCH didn't have vi as it's four flights of stairs running up and down with the USB stick, but I guess I need the exercise.

Thanks again for the useful additional tool.

Can you provide a sample .html that you used in conjunction with the "ether-wake" to get this to work?

RE: Magic Packets? Wake-on-Lan?
+ 1. Exellent feature!
I have the same setup as the original requester. A simple low power 'server' PC as download machine / NAS, which I do not use all the time, and suspends to Hibernate when not used for same time.
From my laptop, I can WoL the 'server' to start new downloads, and it would be great to have this automatically down when I power up my NMT.

+100000

This is something that would be verry cool. Is there an indication if this is under development or how many requests are needed?

RE: Magic Packets? Wake-on-Lan?
Just registered to add my +1

Please add this, it's a real deal breaker for me. I use WOL to wake my server up with my squeezeboxes and it works great, wakes my old vista box from S3 mode sleep in about 3 seconds. Saves the planet and my 'lecky bill too.

(will need a way to prevent the server from sleeping while media is being streamed too).
