Wake on Lan

It would be nice to have a program so that when I am using a computer at work/school and need something stored my computer at home which is off to save money/environment, I could wake it using a portable app. I've found some that are not portable, does anyone know of an open source version that could possibly get modified for portableapps.com?

Uhhh...

What? I have no idea what you are looking for. Can you show me some of the non-portable ones?

IH WOL

IH WOL should do the trick for you. It's open source, free, and stores its list of computers in the same directory as the EXE. Grab it from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ih-wol/

Install it locally and grab the IH WOL.exe file from C:\Program Files\Shaygan\ihwol. Nice and easy. On your drive, create a folder within the PortableApps folder called IHWOL and drop that EXE in it. Next time you start or if you click Options - Refresh, the PortableApps.com Menu will show an IH Wake On Lan icon.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
