How can we improve the SMA (K1000)?

wake on lan

Add wake up button to computer "My computer" tab that is shown to users on login. This could then send the magic packet to the users computer.

This would be useful for off-hours remote waking of the computer for users who VPN to the network and then use RDP to access their work computers from a personal another work computer.

    Allowing a user to wake their computer via user console would help prevent users from leaving their computers on overnight "in case" they want to VPN in later.

    We are subject to some pretty aggressive green energy policies these days, so this would be a really good addition. The difficulty I guess, is determining what PC the user should be allowed to wake? Perhaps any they have previously logged into?

    Thanks,
    Martin
