Remote re-start

Am I right in thinking I can start/restart my Mac remotely from iOS.

I read something about this on a Mac site, but could find no further info. I'd love to be able to access my Mac if away on holiday, but don't want to leave it powered up for a long period and unattended.

Thanks, Colin

Re: Remote re-start

What you are trying to do is called Wake On Lan (WOL) TeamViewer does support it. To set it up please review this KB https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/How-does-Wake-on-LAN-with-TeamViewer-work/ta-p/33

Feel free to ask quiestions if you have any. I am not super familiar with Mac but others may be able to help.

Re: Remote re-start

Thanks for that Bart [delay as Gmail treated the notification as spam].

Sadly it seems that with a Mac it only works to wake from sleep rather than from powered down, but as sleep only consumes 1.16W looks as if it would take over a month to use a KwH! I just have to decide if I am happy to leave it plugged in and on over a long holiday …

Cheers, Colin
