Wake Up Your PC with WoL Everywhere
Have you ever gone through the BIOS on your computer only to see an option called “wake up over network”? If you have, then you may be wondering how to make it work. With this in mind, XDA member LichtiMC has released an app called WoL Everywhere. The purpose of this app is to allow a user to remotely turn on his/her computer. The beauty of this is that it can literally be done from anywhere in the world, as long as your computer and your device have an internet connection. This is particularly useful for people who travel often and need to access files at home from their location. The dev has mentioned that the app is still under development, but it has been reported to work well on the HD2.

You can find more information about it in the application thread.
