WOL Utility

Postby Mark H » Thu Nov 01, 2012 6:36 am

Since I rarely use my desktop, except to use it's printer from my laptop, in the interest of saving a few bucks on power, I'd like to shut it down and power it up only when I need the printer or to access files. Looking for a good free WOL utility compatable with Win 7.

Desktop is XP using onboard NIC, and laptop is Win 7

Anyone know of one?
I have a photographic memory, only problem is, I ran out of film.
