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?
