Panther and Wake on LAN

Message #1 - Posted 2003/12/16 - Mark


Does anyone here use Wake on LAN? I've set up my DSL router so it forwards the WoL traffic, along with SSH so I can get into the freshly-woken Mac.

This all works fine, except my SSH connection drops dead about 30 seconds after the machine is woken. I suspect it's the same period of time that the login window is around for when I wake the machine by clicking a mouse button (ie, if I wake it but don't log in it goes back to sleep after about 30 seconds).

Is this setting configurable? If yes, can I do it from the command line (and in less than 30 seconds)? I'd have a grep through some plists, if only I didn't get booted out so quickly :|
