Is there a way to enable Wake-on-LAN without having to access the BIOS?


I am looking for a VBscript, .bat or com file.



There is a way to enable Wake-on-LAN.


For ThinkPad models T400/R400/W500/X200 and later, you can change any BIOS setting by using WMI script. There is also a few links to the guide for different ThinkCentre systems on this page. You can try searchsing by using keywords "Windows Management Instrumentation Deployment Guide".


When enabling this, ensure that you execute the script with administrative rights. If you only see the "=" sign it indicates that you do not have the proper rights to execute the script.
