wake from screen power save

P: n/a
Hi,

Is there a way to to "wake" a win xp machine from screen power save using
c#?
I got a computer that turns off the screen after a while and i'm programming
an app that reads smart cards and I want the screen to "power on" as soon as
some one inserts a card to the reader.

I think your looking for "Wake on LAN" functionality. I found a snippet
that may do what you need here:
