    wakey

    2.0.2 • Public • Published

    command line utility to wake up computer(s) on LAN from sleep. It keeps a list of computers so you don't have to remember the MAC addresses.

    Usage

    npm install -g wakey to install wakey and make 'wakey' available as a command line tool:

    • wakey help - displays help
    • wakey list - list all computer entries saved in the wakey database, which is a JSON file stored at ~/wakey.json
    • wakey add <name> <MAC> - adds an entry to the database
    • wakey delete <name> - deletes an entry from the database
    • wakey <name> - wakes up a computer

    Note

    The target computer(s) need to be configured to enable the Wake on LAN feature. This StackExchange page provides some information on how to configure it. https://superuser.com/questions/696894/rdp-wake-on-lan-in-lan-environment

    Example

    Assume the computer you want to wake up has MAC address of 12:34:56:78:AB:CD, and is already configured to wake on LAN.

    # install wakey
    npm install -g wakey
    
    # add the target to wakey database
    wakey add my-comp1 12:34:56:78:AB:CD
    
    # wake up the target
    wakey my-comp1
    ... wakey sends the wake packet to wake up the computer ...
    

    Install

    npm i wakey
