I have searched through google and there seems to be many ways to do this but most you have to install some sort of application. This is a learning curve for me but basically I have 4-5 other computers on a network that when I start the main computer (PC1) I want the other 4-5 computers to power on also.
I have experience with running scheduled tasks and I have enabled in the bios and my network cards to Wake On Lan (WOL). I have set automatic startups before using the task scheduler but this is not what I need. My schedule is to erratic.
It appears I need to send a "Magic Packet" and this is new to me. I am hoping I can run a Script of some kind in the task scheduler to send these magic packets out to the other PCs. I am using windows 7 on all the PCs.
Thank you for the help!
