Awieco has just announced the Release Candidate of their Windows Home Server 2011 Awieco WakeOnLan Add-In.

Check out our short video on the installation and the usage case for the Awieco WakeOnLan Add-In.
Awieco WakeOnLan Add-In
Directly from the Awieco website:
The AWIECO WakeOnLAN add-in for Windows Home Server 2011 and Small Business Server 2011 Essentials is a free and useful add-in, which has the ability to remotely turn on a computer. It enables the Server to start up every computer attached to your network. You can also power off a computer out of the Launchpad. The gadget on the WHS or SBS web-interface shows a list of all available and connected computers within your network and provides the possibility to start them up from any location inside your network or via internet, by just one mouse click. You can add further computers to your network manually by entering the MAC address or even delete them. The add-in automatically recognises if a computer is already turned on or if it is booting up.
