How to set up Wake on Lan
Wake on Lan technology is designed to turn on a remote PC over a local network. This requires the slave computer to be in sleep mode and the feature to be enabled in the BIOS.
If you need to restrict control, you should activate the third tab in the list “Enabled, but wake your device using the fallowing desks only”. In the window below, enter one or several AnyDesk IDs that are allowed to control this PC.
How to turn on Wake on Lan in Bios
- When turning on the computer, during system startup, press the Del key (sometimes it is F1, F2 or F12, depending on the OS).

- Find the line that starts with Wake-Up …, Wake on Lan or Power on by PCIE … there are different ways to continue the phrase. It needs to be activated.
