    I'm thinking about buying a 4th Gen Time Capsule to use as backup + router, and I'm curious on how to make Wake on Demand via Wireless to work.

    I have a Macbook Pro Retina and a Late 2012 Mac Mini (baseline). I want to wake up the Mac mini from sleep JUST BY either clicking "Screen sharing" or connecting to the network via Finder.

    Is this possible? Does my Mac Mini support Wake on Wifi? Will it wake automatically or do I have to use a specific command every time I want the magic packet to be sent?

    I think this Wake on Demand thing is a jungle, so please advice. :) Thanks.

    It used to work. Since ML , at least for me, it stopped working :mad:
