Customer Reviews

Good but can be better

Rate it 4-star because developer stated it only wakes machine hook up by wire not on WiFi network and if it supports wake-up by WiFi I would rate it 5.

However, I managed to make it work by WiFi using my iPad/iPhone since this is really what I need that to control my iMac while watching TV downstairs.

Strangely, I noticed if I keep the Splashtop remote server (I use it to remote control my iMac) dialogue box open, i.e. open it's preference and KEEP the dialogue box open not close it then I can use Wake-it to wake up my iMac via WiFi even though it is not wired to my router!

This is a real bonus as I can keep my iMac shut(sleep I shall say) most of the time but when I want to tune into my Apple TV I can easily access my entire library without having to leave my sofa!

Enough been said, Apple shall really look into the great functionality Snow Leopard supported, Wake-on-demend, make it compatible with Apple TV and indeed iOS the like.

Hope this helps those of whom lazy like me... Enjoy!

Works a treat

Works as it should, if your having problems look at your PC first as this app has worked every time for me.

useless product

It worked first time. Then it has never worked. I was so frustrated with this app. I wasted my money. I am not simply telling this, I guess I have good computer knowledge. I uninstalled the programme several times and installed it, but the result is the same. Now I am using iNet WOL app for the wake on lan. It is really fantastic. It never let me down.
