WOL Bios Enabler package

I created two of my own packages using the tools from HP and Dell that do one simple thing, enable WOL in bios settings. I then use PDQ inventory to get separate list of targeted machines by manufacturer and push out the correct WOL package to them.

It would be nice to see a set of packages for Enabling/Disabling Bios settings, categorized by manufacturer (HP, Dell, etc)

  • This could be a nice category of packages to add to PDQ Deploy.

    I have a few packages for things like WOL Enable/Disable, Auto Power ON Enable/Disable. This makes it very simple to push out a needed change without needing to create additional packages in the future.

    Do you think you can post the package tools you have already built. This would be a help for a lot of us and we could just import them into our collection.

  • For Dell machines I have had success with using Dell Command | Configure and exporting a multiplatform .exe that will work for many Dell enterprise systems.  You need to enable Wake on LAN and also disable Low Power Mode or Deep Sleep Mode in the BIOS.

  • Has there been any progress with this?  I'm looking at having to turn on WOL on a couple of hundred PCs, and would prefer not to have to visit them one at a time.  We're using HP desktops on site, so would be interested to hear your HP solution.
