Yup... That looks like it would be perfect for me. Gotta check if my NIC supports it when I get home. Thanks again

Thanks for the tip... Yes, ports matter here

I suppose I asked the wrong question then. Since WOL is more about hardware configuration than OS configuration, does the receiving end (my desktop) actually need to listen on a particular port to process magic packets? Do ports even come into play at this part of the process?

Yes, this is a good point. I'll have to check on this later. I did setup my computer to have a static IP address on the local network. Wouldn't the router still be able to find the mac address in this case since the NIC will still be powered?

Actually, I just thought of something else. I already have an open port for the RDP connections. Is there any reason I couldn't simply send the magic packets over that very same port?

I'm concerned about both the power usage and the extra, unnecessary use of the hardware. The shell idea definitely has some merit; I'll look into that one. Thanks for your perspective on this
