1E Wakeup Script

Posted on August 25th, 2011

Saving energy by putting systems to sleep or by turning them off can have a big return in a large enterprise.  1E’s Nightwatchman and Wakeup allow you to power on the systems with SCCM and other products.  But what if you are running a batch file or a script?  Or what if you want to RDP to a computer that is turned off?  1EWakeup.vbs is a modification of a script by Reto Egeter posted at MyITForum.  I made a large number of changes.  My version works interactively, but it also supports a command line, and pings the computer both before and after the wakeup is sent. Errorlevels are set so that the reason for failure can be determined in a batch file.

Please Note

All the scripts are saved as .txt files. Newer files have a "View Script" button which will let you save or open a script in notepad. For earlier posts, the easiest way to download with IE is to right click on the link and use "Save Target As". Rename file from Name_ext.txt to Name.ext.

All new users accounts must be approved, as are comments. Please be patient. It is pretty easy to figure out my email address from the scripts, and you are welcome to contact me that way.
