I've read a lot about this topic, but I am still a bit stumped. What I am, in essence, trying to do is wake up my home computer (probably using WOL), and access it pre-login. How would I go about accessing my computer remotely at the login screen? Is there a special program? Can I use Window's "Remote Desktop" to do it? Any help is appreciated! :huh:
