    Hi,

    I want to wake my MacPro via Wake on Lan when its turned off.
    Is this possible or is this only possible when my MacPro is in sleep-mode?

    Thanks :)

    Last I checked, Wake on LAN only works on the Mac Pro over wired Ethernet connection and from sleep mode. Your PC can wake on LAN from power off because it has a BIOS setting that allows it to so do. To the best of my knowledge there is no equivalent feature in the Mac EFI.

    Or design a remote controlled finger that automates the Mac Pro power button :D
