I have found a great little utility to perform actions to other pc's on my network. I mainly use it for the wake-on-lan capability. It is called Poweroff 3.0, and you can get it here.
Anyway, it does everything great, but there's just one little glitch, and I just wanted to see if any of you geniuses could figure out what is happening.
Here's the scenario:
PC #1: The pc that I have Poweroff installed on. This is the machine I issue the commands from to wake up other pcs.
PC #2: The pc that I am sending the WOL command to. This is the machine that I am waking up via PC #1.
So here's what happens. I start out with PC #2 in hibernation state. I send the WOL command from PC #1, and PC #2 wakes up fine. No problems. However, then I go to put PC #2 back into hibernation, it goes into hibernate, then immediately resumes out of hibernation.
So what I'm wondering is, is the WOL command, or the "magic packet" just hanging around out there on my network, and not going away, so that every time I put the machine into hibernate, it just starts back up again?
The first time, I tried restarting PC #1 to see if maybe that would stop the signal from being sent, and that seemed to fix it. However, now, that does not even work. I can't put PC# 2 into hibernation at all now without it just starting right back up!
I tried completely shutting down, and rebooting both machines, and it is still having this problem. Any ideas?
