dtgreene: Why "etherwake" rather than "wakeonlan"?
No reason. etherwake and wakeonlan will both do the same thing. Use whichever you like.

dtgreene: Will wake-on-lan wake up a computer that's just sleeping (as opposed to one that is fully powered down)?
It should.

dtgreene: (Also, usually "#" is used to indicate that a command should be run as root, and you don't normally use "sudo" if you're root already.)
Either:
# sudo wakeonlan
or:
$ wakeonlan
@dtgreene

I use it to wash my cloths (j/k)

I shut it down every night.
- Lowers my energy bill. (hey I can buy an extra candy bar or two, until I go see the dentist...)
- Hopefully extends the life of my hardware. (bad enough I don't exercise my duster...the fluffy thing)
- The lights from monitor keep me up at night. (bounces off the wall mounted mirror that takes up the whole wall...don't ask)
- Prefer not to keep a constant connection to the internet when I'm not around. (I'm not paranoid...pretty sure)

- Gave you a +1 since I too am wondering why you got rated down. Someone seems to care too deeply about you. May want to tell them to you can only handle so much love.

It probably has the opposite effect. Not significant, but booting up is more consuming than a few hours of idling.

No need to change behaviour because of this. I also turn my computer off if I am not going to be using it within a couple of hours.

Just noticed since you mentioned it. Yeah, what gives? This is an interesting question. Also +1'd.

Good info, thanks. Saves me time Googling. :)

No idea on this either. Guess anonymity allows people to swing that hammer pretty fast and furious.
