    Doesn't seem to work at the moment with 10.10. I have MBP and iMac running Yosemite with Apple Extreme "n" router. Both devices will not WOL no matter how many PRAM Zaps, restarts, Wifi only, ethernet only...nothing.

    For now I will have to leave them on never sleep to access on my network. Temporary but not eco friendly solution.

    Which version of 10.10 do you have installed? If you have not tried this yet, repair permissions in Disk a Utility and reboot.

    Both Macs are on 10.10.3 (14D136). Yes I have done both and reset smc and pram. No effect. Both Mac do run stable and have only one other issue that I have observed. Strange that 10.6.5 on my older iMac duo core has no problem with WOL. I hate leaving it on 24/7, so if there is no solution with Yosemite, I'm sure I can downgrade back to Mavericks and see if WOL works there.

    I see there is a new 10.10.04 Beta release. Can anyone confirm that this release fixes the WOL not working as designed?
