Is there any remote support software that can power on a remote workstation that is powered off?

AS far as I know there is no software to power up a remote workstation that is not on. I could be wrong though it has been known to happen ... once .... I think or was I mistaken?

I don't use this option so I'm not sure of what all has to be done. If the motherboard on the remote computer has "wake on LAN" this would be possible. Besides enabling that in the BIOS, there are jumpers on the mobo (at least on mine) that have to be changed. If you wanted the remote to shut down after accessing it, you would simply adjust your power settings

I believe Intel's vPro platform contains some form of remote-boot technology.
