I've been using Don't Sleep for some time now and it works great for me. It updates frequently but I never had a problem with the many previous versions. I use it when doing routine unattended maintenance, when making large backups and downloads.

I think "Don't Sleep" should win an award for the most updated program on TPFW. :-) Works well though, thanks.

WakeMeOnLan v1.78

  • 355KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 16 Sep 2016
  • Suggested by Checker

WakeMeOnLan allows you to easily turn on one or more computers remotely by sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packet over the network. This will return machines from a standby or turned-off state, useful for administrators or to save electricity until resources are needed. WakeMeOnLan also allows you to scan your network and collect the MAC addresses of all online computers. This information can be exported to a file.

Additionally, an available command-line interface can turn on a computer using a computer name, IP address, or the MAC address of the remote network card.

Why cant you just delete the DCUpdate file?

Ganamyde on 2013-05-05 09:15

Hello Skwire,

Here is a list of bugs I encountered after a couple of minutes testing it:
-It doesn't always show app icon in about child GUI, I think your better of using static control and STM instead of picture control, less embarrassing.
-Use "UseErrorLevel" when running a link in case there is no default browser.
-Very slow startup.

webfork on 2013-05-05 20:50

Ganamyde: recommend posting that to forums (I just added an official forum thread to the entry). Also, I'd include which version of Windows you're using.

@rodger123: This "worse" version only leaves files in Internet Explorer's cache. IMHO, the overhead caused by PortableApps.com Launcher is not worth it.
