Anydesk Wake On Lan Windows 11

Wake-on-LAN has many advantages for companies and employees. The feature facilitates unattended operation of devices, for example. If machines are operated remotely via unattended access but accidentally shut down or require a reboot, this isn’t a big deal. You don’t need to send someone else to turn the machine back on, as Wake-on-LAN can do the job for you.

It also allows employees to leave heavy enterprise-grade equipment at the office, as they can remotely power on their workstations. This is useful when staff want to finish a project from home after business hours, for example, but the device at the office has already been turned off. With a professional remote access tool that provides Wake-on-LAN features, powered off devices will not negatively affect remote work or remote support in any way.
