Putting my server to sleep / hibernate or shut down to 'wake it up' automatically [SOLVED]

  • For me, not working.

    I have WOL installed.

    I dont know raspberry, supposing its nic has wol enabled.


    Check if lan card support WOL is available for the operative system.

    In the shell uses the command

    ethtool eth0

    where eth0 is you NIC.

    If it is supported, the output should have:

    Supports Wake-on: pumbg

    Wake-on: g.

    If last is not present but there is a "d" in "Supports wake-on", it means you can enable it with

    ethtool -s eth0 wol g

    This config has lost if restart, you have to put this line as last, under the related interface

    up ethtool -s eth0 wol g

    in /etc/network/interfaces

  • Hi 'WI'.


    I have this:

  • hi, maybe we should start a new thread or going private since this thread is marked as solved...

    By the way, I dont know if this feature you report

    Supports Wake-on: gsf

    Means you can activate WOL, you should ask better into a PI related forums.

    You may try at your own risk the command I posted before. I dont know more, just reported you some notes I understood/toke/used from a wiki page, cannot help further 😬

  • Thank you for your help.

    I will follow your suggestion.
