Wake on Lan not working; can't wake target computer when it sleeps or shuts down
I discovered the Wake on Lan feature after reading this thread: can't wake computer using mouse/keyboard
I followed the instructions, but WoL isn't allowing me to wake or turn on my target computer.
Also, when I physically push the power button to power my computer back on after being shut down, I can't see the log-in screen in the web interface. Nor can I use the mouse/keyboard in the web interface to log in. I have to physically log in from the target computer. Only after I entered the password did the screen finally show up in the web interface.
Is this expected? Any suggestions for how to get WoL working?

Hello @stargazer - Thank you for opening a new thread.
Wake on Lan, please check for the following:
- Wake On Lan should be enabled on the target computer's BIOS.
- The TinyPilot and your target computer need to be on the same network for Wake on Lan to work.
I have a couple questions for you:
- Is the target computer an Apple laptop? If so, can you share which model is it?
- What happens if you reboot the TinyPilot while the target computer is at the login screen?
