    I have a computer running Apache that I need access to fairly infrequently. I want to have it sleep until a request comes in so I'm not burning through 6kWh per day just to answer one request. I set it up so that it would wake up on receiving network packets, but it never goes to sleep when set that way. What I want to do is have it only wake up when there is an incoming connection to port 80. I'm sure there's probably a way to accomplish this with some firewall rule, but I'm not sure.

    Is there some way to make Tomato send a magic packet when an incoming connection to port 80 comes in for a specific IP? The ideal solution would follow this logic:

    1. Incoming connection to port 80 received.
    2. Is the destination computer awake (ping test)?
    3. If not awake, send magic packet. Else, just forward.

    Sounds Useful.

    Did you ever get a working solution for the situation.

    Would appreciate if you can share it over here.
