Waking Up Your PC To Run Tasks

I was pleasantly surprised that you can wake your PC up from standby or hibernation mode to perform tasks using the standard XP or Vista's Task Scheduler from the Control Panel. Make sure that you have 'Wake the computer to run this task' checked.

If you need more control of the tasks, example to hibernate after the task is completed, or to do it via batch files (command line), then the WakeUpOnStandby program will do the job better.
