Powering On Student Devices

LanSchool utilizes the Wake on Lan protocol to remotely power on student devices that are turned off. 

Wake on Lan and LanSchool will only work with wired Windows devices that are turned off.

If you are using Macs, the Wake on Lan protocol will only allow you to bring the Macs out of Hibernation, it will not power on the Macs if they are turned off.

For further information about Wake on Lan and troubleshooting please see, Configuring and Troubleshooting Wake on Lan.
