Remotely Turn on Computer with Linux

I really wish more people used WOL. It is probably one of the most underrated things in the world of wired networking. If you aren’t familiar, WOL (Wake on Lan) allows you to remotely turn on your computer. This could be from another computer or even your Android device. It works by supplying a little bit of power to your Ethernet card to allow it to listen for the “wake up” signal.
