Wake on LAN (WoL) is an industry standard protocol used to remotely power on Wake on LAN-enabled computers from a low-power mode using a UDP broadcast on the local subnet. Patch Manager uses Wake on LAN to ensure a targeted system is running before performing a scheduled task.  

Ensure that all targeted computers meet all Wake on LAN requirements. When you are finished, set up Wake on LAN in the Patch Manager Administrator Console to discover all computers in a subnet that require Wake on LAN for patch management.

After you schedule the Wake on LAN, Update Management, and Shutdown or Reboot Computers tasks, you can power on remote computers, apply your updates, and shut down the targeted computers when the updates are completed.
