Publisher's Description:

WakeupOnStandBy - Have you ever thought about how much energy your computers use up at night or when they're not in use? Have you ever wondered if it's possible to wake up your system from a Sleep mode (or Hibernation) using a resident program and not waste all that energy?

The answer is yes, it is possible! This simple utility will let you do it. Besides that it can also send your system back into a Sleep mode (hibernate it, power it off, or log-off a user). Moreover, you can also use this utility as a scheduler to run programs without involving a Sleep mode. Our latest feedback shows that this utility could be used for an in-car PC to optimize booting time and to save battery life.

Our carbon footprint grows out of control with each day.

Start small. Let's Save Energy!

Special features:

* Can restore almost every Windows-based Operating System from a Sleep mode (and most systems from hibernation as well).

* Can run a file or open a web page at a predetermined time after a wake-up event, during normal operation, or before performing power operation.

* Can send system back into a Sleep mode (hibernate it, shut it down, or log off user) after a waiting period.

* Can detect if a wake event from a Sleep mode (or hibernation) is supported by your system.

* Can turn your monitor on and hold off screen-saver during a waiting period.

* Can repair local area network and high-speed Internet connections upon waking up from a suspended power state.

* Can send system into a Sleep mode or hibernate it with more options than available through the Operating System.

* Can be incorporated into an in-car (entertainment) PC system to speed up booting time & save battery.

* Can be run from the Windows Command Line without a user interaction.

* Can be saved in a batch file for later use.

* We can customize this utility to better fit the needs of your organization.

This could be a very essential tool for DVR purposes. I think the biggest improvement would be to engineer it for multi wakeup events with a single screen to view all that are enabled. I don't like having an entry in the systray for each event.

I would also like some info on how to get around the User Access Control in Vista. If the pc is rebooted, often it marks each entry & keeps it from running until I specifically enable it.

I think it is a great idea. Unfortunately not simple enough for my needs: a small non resident utility to remote boot a remote PC on demand.

Good tool though.

I've had this in use on my desktop and laptop for the past couple of months and it has performed just 'as it says on the label!'

After a bit of a learning curve (do read the manual!!) it is simple to use and probably covers many, many useful schedules of use - but if you want to change your arrangements you have to create a new schedule - re-entering the previous stuff while incorporating the changes. (There is a means of keeping a record of old arrangements - but I haven't gone in to that. This is no great problem

I use it to turn the computer on to let Free Download Manager collect some data from a site ( which gives problems by requiring a new manual log-on after some time (unspecified - but seems to be a couple of days or so) of 'non-use'- and FDM's facility to sign on is ignored by the site. Using Wakeup to turn on the machine, FDM can be set to collect the data I want every day - so keeping the site happy - and ensuring that it is downloaded on the actual day, once a week, that I want it

Good mroning,
Tested the program last night, I think it will work well for my application. I am going away for six weeks and I want to wake the computer up each day, so that I can log in and do banking and retrieve emails etc.

Wosb is a very light weight and an extremely handy tool which helps me in running certain tasks at a specified time. It really saves me some sleep. As I can schedule a task too. So go ahead and download it. I wrote about it in my blog too.

Actually, I was looking to wake up my notebook on AC power, what I'm doing with a trick using Windows Task Scheduler. It would be better to accomplish that using a software other than task scheduler. Your software works fine, but don't have the feature I need (wake up on AC power).

Miklos73 2010-01-20 21:45:11 #

This is great software. I tried using Windows scheduler but it caused a malfunction with my download manager. This program is straightforward, easy to use, and non-intrusive. Highly recommended to all. AAA+++

Literally "does what it says on the tin." Not only that, but it comes equipped with a few fabulous features; allows you to tell it to operate some function on alarm. As in, I chose to play a song from YouTube. A firm five out of five.

Great utility.....but I do I get it to keep the computer on after waking it out of standby? It wakes correctly but then after 15 minutes or so it goes back into standby.

This is a simply awesome product. Resume from standby is not something some of the other popular products in this domain offer. The best part is that it is free!

unfortunately the wake up on stanby didnt work. I'm not sure if it was my fault or i did something wrong while downloading the wakeuponstandby but when i finally activated the program my computer never managed to wakeup from the stand by mode...too bad

Absolutely perfect, works flawlessly and as promised. I use i on my netbook as an alarm clock.

So far my experience with this program has been good. I'm no computer guru for sure and I had no problems getting going with it. I kind of don't like having to turn off the password requirement upon wake up but I'll live with that. Other than that I have no complaints and everything is working just as it was described. Nice job and thanks.

It's a wonderful product, and works exactly as advertised. I use it to power my computer on during the day to run a scheduled virus scan. Then, after two hours, the computer goes to sleep, saving energy!

Worked great for me. I had one of those digital photo/alarm frames, but this option is much better, and more flexible. It's great to be able to wake up to a music video etc. Thanks for making it available.

It didn't work for me on my Windows XP machines. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or not. I found another way to wake up my machines by using a scheduled task.

This might be a good program, I just didn't want to take the time to troubleshoot my problem.

I'm not often impressed, but this genuinely useful utiity has done just that. Easy install and utilisation. And more importantly - it works - right out of the box.

I use it to grab data at predetermined times and as I am often travelling, I'm not awlays awake at these set times. This, will make a LOT of difference.

Very clever, very smart tool.

Big thanks to Dennis Babkin and the guys & gals at qarchive.

very nice, waiting for future developments.

WakeonStandby is a very useful program. My computer is fairly limited because of a really unuseful bios which doesn't have any advanced options or to wake up the computer from power down. This program allows me to merely wake up my computer so over the course that it's on, the virus scan can complete and update itself and the defrag program can run, and after all this, it will re-hibernate my computer. I think it's very useful, and possibly the only few things i'd be looking for are with this being able to boot up with the computer and having and interface that allowed it. I use vista 32 bit, and this utility is more useful than my task scheduler.

WOL still Asleep

Hi, thank you for the followup.
The installation was without problems but I have not yet managed to get the Remote Computer to Wake Up from Sleep. Must be something in my NIC PCI card that I have not yet managed to understand.

Wanderer2day 2008-05-30 16:38:08 #

No better than WakeUp

Neither of these programs work on my computer. They don't wake it up and when either one of these are fixed and working it would be nice to add a Word Pad document with clear directions on how to use them to the download. It might be that I am not configuring them correctly, but without directions, I will never know.

Found It!

Yay found something to wake up my computer, so it can wake me up!

And on weekends it lets me sleep, so clever!


WOSB evaluator 2008-03-12 13:15:56 #

Doesn`t seem to always wake my computer up.

I used this program for a few days and it seems to wake my computer up only a little over 50 percent of the time. I have used other programs that are similar to this that do the same thing. So I guess that all programs do the same thing so it doesn't matter.

Great Backup tool.

This tool works great for making sure that my PC is one for scheduled backups. I've been using it to wake up my PCs for their scheduled backup while still allowing them to go to low power modes for energy saving.

Very functional, useful and concise utility.

Thank you for sharing this utility. Well written, plenty of options.

Agnes 2008-01-18 04:32:51 #

Some suggestions

Here's some suggestions for your consideration:
1. Device a way to change the wakeup schedule without turning WOSB off. Many times I would forget to turn it on again after changing the time.
2. Allow "turn-off" time to be more flexible by adding the option to override turn-off time if the computer is still being used.
3. Make turn-off time independent of wakeup time. I'm not sure what happens if I manually wake my computer before the scheduled time. Will it turn off x hours from that time or from the originally scheduled wakeup time?

It does the job

Needed a tool to schedule wake-up, stand-by, hibernate and shut-down tasks, to be operated both from interface and command line.

WAOS Good freeware, lacking some features.

Uncluttered interface. Ease of setup. Not to many features. I would have liked to set times for both startup and shutdown of PC. A auto login feature would also be nice. All in all a nice free ware program that will stay on my PC.

Does exactly what I want it to do

All I wanted was my pc to turn on at a specified time, run a program and then go back into hibernation ready for the cycle to repeat. It does this simply and efficiently. Brilliant little program. Now I don't have to listen to my noisy pc by day and by night it can work away with me out of the way.

Fantastic freebee

Great to see some software that can wake my computer up from standby without crashing it. I use it to use the computer as a clock radio to wake me in the morning and it does this well. No complaints.

Very Good, a little confusing.

The program is very good, i'm a little disappointed by the repeat task item, I wasn't sure if it was going to come on tomorrow or not. I wouldn't recommend it to my mother, but someone with a little more computer knowledge, without a doubt.

I use this program to wake up at 5:30am, I have a rule set up in Outlook to print my daily agenda from Google Calendar, so my agenda is waiting for me each day when I wake, it does the job magnificently.

LAUser 2007-06-29 15:09:52 #

Exactly as advertised

I needed something that would wake up my computer to perform a backup to tape every night, and WakeUpOnStandby does exactly that. It was easy to set up, and once I reset my power settings so that it didn't go to hibernate, it worked perfectly. Thanks!

Great control features

This was not exactly what I was looking for. Though it has terrific features for being able to control power on/off for your computer I was looking for something to be able to wake the computer remotely so that I can access from overseas via logmein. Any ideas would be appreciated to

Was looking for a product to wake up my pc remotely from my laptop. This was achieved successfully after a few attempts. I wanted to hibernate my pc, as i currently run it 24/7, but did not wish to go to its location to do so to turn it off.

After trying a few different scenarios, I have found that if I use the command to start a program up (utorrent), then the pc will acivate from hibernation. If i give no such command ie starting an application up, then the pc does not come out of hibernation.

The product is perfect for my use and would happily recommend it to others, plus I will be donating today.

Very useful

Simple and powerfull! It is what i was searching for.

if there were a shutdown on requested time it would be better. I have to usethe "switch off" for that purpose.

Thank you a lot!

for now i am using it just to wake up (from hibernation).

Good for certain jobs only

This program works well but does not correctly handle Windows configurations that require the user to enter a password when waking up from standby. Hence the back up scripts did not execute. If you don't need to use passwords the range of functions that is provides for Wakeup, Running applications and then shutting down the PC is very good.

happy end user

i was looking for an easy interface to start my computer to wake me up as well as save electricity while asleep. WakeUpOnStandby as full filled my needs
i am very happy with this product.

Wake up....

I think that WakeupOnStandBy is an exelent program, to be abel to start and put my computer on standby is great, now I can put my computer to sleep when I go to work and it's awake and ready when I get home.
I originaly downloaded the program to use it as an Alarm clock that I could use on my computer without having to leave the computer on the hole night.
The program handels this task very well, there are only two things I'd like added to the program, the possibility to make and save wakeups and shutdowns for several days in the week without having to reset the program each time.
The second thing is that I'd wish for the program to be abel to play mp3's without having to use my existing mp3 player, it's exelent that the program can execute programs or files on start up and that is sufficient for my needs but I'd still like it if it could play a mp3 without distrubing my mp3 player.
