    I've done some google searches and some looking on the App Store but I'm torn as to which Wake On LAN app I should get. Ideally it would be a universal binary. I don't mind paying for it (if a free version is not available). This app does not have to work over the internet (I don't need to forward Wake On LAN when I am away, but the feature could be handy)

    Thanks for any and all assistance.

    I believe that iOS' power management pretty much does this already by itself... when an iDevice is in sleep, the wifi is in 'hot standby' and will come full on when needed by the OS or an app in the background... if someone knows otherwise, I'm open to seeing documentation...

    I'm guessing that the OP wants to use an iOS device to send a WOL prompt to a Mac or Windows PC on the same network.

    OK... I've not noticed any apps that will do that...

    I've seen a few apps that do this but didn't know of any recommendations. And yes I'm referring to sending a magic packet and waking up a PC or Mac.

    An AppStore search shows many apps that can supposedly do this but I don't have any recommendation other than starting with the free ones to see if they work.

    Hi! I kinda tried all of the free ones and my chois is this:
    I use TeamViewer first. Since is the remote tool that i use, i use it for WOL too. Search web for the how to..
    Second is RemoteBoot WOL - simple app that only sends WOL packet.
    Many of the appstore free apps are just for local network WOL so if you want to do it over the internet you need one that offers a specify port option.
    Can't post links since this is my first post. Hope it helps! Cheers!
