Software

I was wondering if anyone could recommend software that will wake computers up remotely. I have tried a few free ones that did not work.

Have you tried "Wizmo" its a free app that allows you to create scripts to manage your computer.

If it does not contain a command to wake them up, any other freeware that allows you to move the mouse or click should wake it up ( such as autoIT ):

Forgot to mention, after creating your move mouse script or wakeup function you need to schedule it in the windows task scheduler:

I took a look at these applications and they do have a lot of features that are cool but I am not seeing what I need unless I just not seeing it.
Example: When I am at home and I VPN into work and need to work on someone computer but it went to sleep how do I wake the computer up so I can work on it?

::ponders :: you VPN into your computer at work and use Remote Desktop connection to access the others and they do not wake up or respond when you connect?

Are the computers you are trying to connect to in sleep mode / hibernate / or off?

You might look into configuring the ethernet cards on the computers at work so that they wake them on activity...
