Can IIS wake up the system?

3 New Member
We have a system with Windows 7 Ultimate and IIS7. If there is no activity for 1 hour, the system enters to sleep. Can IIS7 wake up the system from sleep state when somebody try to access the computer's IP address?

Thank you!

It you're going to have a web server, you should set it to never sleep.

You could try allowing your NIC to wake the computer up.

@Rabbit: thank for the advise
@mperrigon: wake on lan working very well but i'm looking for a solution to wake up the sistem from outside of the router through IIS (when somebody try to view my page). The sistem is super fast - it need only 3-4 sec to wake up. From intranet, WOL are working perfectly.

i'm not sure I understand what you are asking for. Any request for a page view goes through the NIC so the system should wake up. Here are some more resources which may be helpful

Check out the section Remote Wake On LAN via Port Forwarding and Automatic Wake-On-LAN Daemon

I have a thread that sleeps for 5 minutes once it's finished running a method and then it repeats itself if it's supposed to (bool = true). Prior to 2.0 I was able to resume the thread after marking the bool to false which would cause the thread to finish what it was doing and complete, or to wake up for it's sleep state and not loop back into itself anymore. How do we tell a thread to stop sleeping now that Thread.Resume is obsolete?

Hi everyone: I have only found system.windows.forms.application.setsuspendstate method could make system into standby or hibernate state, but I don't know how to reboot the system. And I want to know how to wake up the system after hibernate/standby? For example, if my user input "3" and hibernate, the system should enter hibernate and wake up itself after 3 minutes.

When I select standby by computer goes to sleep. When I try to wake it up with the mouse or keyboard it will not work. The drives and monitor are functioning though. I can even open the DVD/CD drives. I end having to hold the power button and restart. I've disabled Hibernate thinking that be it. I've enabled keyboard to wake it up in the device manager. -- Brandy

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
