There are no hubs, switches or routers etc. Ihave a BB cable modem connected to my desktop loaded with my main software, and laptop has minimual software, both run XP Pro. I network the two machines directly using either a cat 5 crossover cable or an ad-hoc wireless network (wireless pci adaptor and wireless pcmcia adaptor) depending on what I want at the time. I may connect the laptop to the internet using Internet Connection Sharing so the desktop talks to the ISP. With the cable connected my desktop wakes and automatically reverts to standby when I switch the laptop on and off (eg. for Remote Desktop use) by the normal WOL function.While WoL is a standard method to generate a wake-up event, there is no complementary "Sleep on LAN" so I don't understand how the desktop "automatically reverts to standby".
I use a program called "Switch Off" whaich can be used to switch off/standby/hibernate etc other machines across a network, using a web interface.
