Hi Experts,

Is it possible to have a VB script that checks to see if a computer (Windows 7 Pro) is powered on, and if it is not, power it up?

Thanks,
Comment

Dont think that it's necessary to check if it's off. There's no harm in sending the "Wake-up Packet" to a client thats already on.

There's an example of a Vbs WOL script here.
