Turn on a computer



  • You may need to turn on Wake On Lan in your PC's BIOS first.

    I run this command on my Raspberry Pi to wake up my PC:

    wakeonlan c8:60:00:9b:69:1a
    

    Install the wakeonlan tool on a Raspberry Pi and some Linux distros like this:

    apt install wakeonlan
    

    There are multiple ways to get your PC's network card's mac address. One is to ping the PC, then type this to see all of the entries in your arp table:

    arp -a
