    I'm running Snow Leopard on my iMac which is wirelessly connected to the house's router with Airport. The PC is connected directly to the router with the ethernet cable. It is a fairly new computer, running Windows 7. It is an Acer, 2.something GHz processor. Is there any software that I can use on my mac to wake up my PC remotely from my Mac? Thank you.
