    Cool

    Basically it's used on a LAN to remotely start up a computer. For example, if you wanted to update all the virus signatures on my network, or roll out a major software upgrade, you could remotely instruct all the workstations to start (if they aren't already running) then you can ensure every workstation gets the update. You would usually do this kind of stuff at night, so this solves the problem of PC's not being turned on. I don't know how you would implement this, but it sounds cool.
