ATVWakeOnLan is a plugin that will wake your remote media servers up from standby. The plugin adds the "Wake Up" root menu item to the bottom of the list. When you enter the Wake Up menu, you are presented with a list of servers based on your configuration file. Selecting any server sends the magic wake on LAN packet.

Configuration via /etc/wakeonlan.cfg

The configuration file is clean and simple:

 # cat /etc/wakeonlan.cfg
 #  Display Name , Hostname, MAC address
 Beagle 3 ,beagle3 ,00:00:00:00:00:0a
 Nacho    ,nacho   ,00:00:00:00:00:0b
 Pluto    ,pluto   ,00:00:00:00:00:0c

It works perfectly for me but all support is done either through the irc channel or via this wiki.
