Lets find out how to use our Android device to remotely power on our PC.
Before You Start
Install Android App
If your PC does support WoL, your first step is to install Wake On Lan, a free Android app.
Download: Wake On Lan (Free)
Next, we need to connect your Android device to your Windows computer using the app.
When you first open the app, it will look pretty bleak. Tap the + icon in the bottom right and follow the on-screen instructions to add your first device.
Once you follow the app’s instructions, it will search for devices connected to your local network. If many computers, phones, and tablets use your internet connection, the list can be confusing. The easiest way to identify your target computer is through its MAC address.
To find your computer’s MAC address, head over to your computer, press Windows key + R, enter CMD, and hit Enter. Then type ipconfig/all into the command prompt and press Enter. This command will reveal your computer’s Physical Address, a string of six two-digit numbers, also known as the MAC address.
Now return to the Android app and select the entry with the matching MAC address. Choose a name for the device and choose the appropriate Wi-Fi network.
Place your computer in Sleep or Hibernate mode (Start > Power > Sleep / Hibernate), and press the Wake button on the Wake On Lan app.
If you followed these steps correctly and didn’t work check the following settings:
Enable WoL for Your Network Adapter
In Windows 10, right-click the Start button and select Device Manager. You can also do a Windows Search for Device Manager. Navigate to Network Adapters, right-click the one you use to connect with the internet, and select Properties.On the Power Management tab, you’ll find three checkboxes, including Allow this device to wake the computer and Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer. If they’re not already checked, do so. This should clear up any trouble that’s causing the Android app to malfunction.
Disable Fast Startup
Open the Control Panel, search for Power Options, and select Change what the power buttons do. At the top, click Change settings that are currently unavailable, then scroll down and uncheck Turn on fast startup (recommended). Finally, click Save changes .
