Hi, cruising around the BIOS settings on my Dell GX270 the other day and
came across a Remote Wake-up thingy turned on

My understanding is that (somehow) i could turn my computer on using another
computer on the network. If so can somebody tell me how you acheive this?

Thanks

Do a web search for "wake on LAN" and "magic packet".
