    Suppose I shut down my target computer. I wonder if there is a way to turn it on using the TinyPilot web interface?

    Thank you.

      Hi @sfan, thanks for reaching out with your question about starting a computer.

      TinyPilot Pro supports Wake-on-LAN, which is a protocol that allows you to turn on a compatible computer using a network connection. Most modern computers support Wake-on-LAN, but you may need to enable it in your system settings and/or BIOS. You can find more instructions, and a video demonstration, in the release notes.
