Send WHS to Sleep and Wake it up Again

Imagine this:-

You have your Home Server configured to wake up for a couple of hours a day to perform backups and then go back to sleep, which is made possible via the LightsOut add-in. However to use your Home Server outside of these hours you can send it a WakeOnLan (WOL) request to wake it up without physically switching the machine on.

But how do you send it back to sleep?


By using a third party application called Poweroff and the add-in Advanced Admin Console you can easily send your server back to sleep via a toolbar button. And if you want to know all the details, they are available from here.

    The guys from the autoexit addin (www.asoft.be) also have a desktop shutdown tool which can be used for this.
