    Hello!

    I have a mac pro in my studio, hopping on some open wireless network...
    I also have an old 12" powerbook.

    I understand that I can have my new mac pro (Snow Leopard) sleeping, and have my powerbook hooked up to it with ethernet always on... and be able to wake up the mac pro through something called wake on lan?

    How do I set this up? How do i set it up in both osx sl and xp pro?

    thanks!

    Mac side you could do it through the Energy Saver preference pane.
    On Windows I would set it within the Device Manager.

    So once I set "Wake for Ethernet Network Access", how do I set up my powerbook to wake the mac pro? and how do I wake it up from another location?

    thanks,

    Once I put the mac pro on 'wake for ethernet access', and have the powerbook online fulltime and hooked up to the mac pro with ethernet.... how do i wake the mac pro from a remote location?

    i couldn't find a tutorial online for this...
    thanks!
