Hello all,


I've been using WOL fine on my machine (win 10 x64 pro, asrock z77 extreme 6 mobo, linksys EA6900 with WRT-Merlin firmware, Motorola SB650 modem) however I got the bright idea the other day to buy a 16.00 remote socket from amazon (I can turn on and off my power socket (aka my PCs power strip) from my cellphone.


Anyways when I power off my PC (just testing in case I ever need to actually use it) by shutting off the smart socket, I think it might put my PC to S5 power mode. Via google they say you can't WOL from S5, however there are mixed opinions on the matter. I also have my PCI power settings to on in my BIOS. Tried everything, just looking for a solid answer if you can WOL after a power black out.


Also if you can not do that, instead of a 16.00 remote power socket (in theory would have worked great) is there a decent affordable consumer level PDU that I can access via TCP/IP? Something with a GUI, or possibly even an app :) I know that there are 3GS remote power switches (3gs is the name brand) but it seems a bit outdated, and the alternatives are really bad (bad reviews in general and almost no online documentation)


How do you guys manage your systems (home system) remotely in case of a brown/blackout? (Teamviewer, WOL etc.)


Thank you!!
