WOL - Wake-up On Lan. Used as helper application for home PC videorecorder system or for whatever else reason where PC remote wake-up is required. Works only in local networks, as it uses broadcasting.
For me it was useful to turn on PC when videorecording scheduler reached its startup time. It means that WOL program runs on some old notebook (running 24/7 and eats not much electricity power) and on time reached turns on a PC with huge power consumption, and PC starts high-quality MPEG2 recording and after recording ends up PC turn itself to off.
