Wake-On-Lan definition

A technology developed by the IBM and Intel Advanced Manageability Alliance where a computer motherboard can turn itself on (and off) based on signals arriving at the computer's network card. Thus, if all your client machines support Wake-on-LAN you could remotely turn all your client machines on during a Saturday afternoon and perform a network-based upgrade without actually going to each machine and powering it on. WOL is certainly a useful technology for network administrators.
