Wake on LAN (WOL) allows you to remotely power on WOL-enabled computers using a UDP broadcast on the local subnet. Patch Manager provides WOL functionality to use in conjunction with other scheduled tasks to patch computers that are not powered on. By scheduling the WOL, Update Management, and Shutdown or Reboot Computers tasks, you can power on remote computers, apply the updates you specify, and then shut down the computer when the update is finished.

Before you attempt to use this feature, ensure your target systems meet the requirements listed in the following section.
