    Default Looking for the best WAKE on LAN app.

    Here's what I'm looking to do:

    My media library is on my desktop internal hdd. All of my devices are on my "home network" with "file sharing turned on". If I want to stream iTunes music, movie, pictures etc . . to my iOS device(s): Apple TV, iPhones, iPad . . I have to do the following:

    Currently, if I want to play my iTunes library on my Apple TV downstairs, I have to run upstairs to wake up my desktop computer and launch iTunes so my Apple TV can access the media.

    I'm looking for an app on my iPhone (wake on LAN app or any other simple solution) that can wake up desktop computer and launch iTunes from the comfort of my couch downstairs when I want to access my media from my Apple TV, iPhone, iPad etc...

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I'm sure there's a app but what I did is just set the computer to not go to sleep n just turn off the monitor after 20 min
