    Is Wake-On-Lan supposed to work in Boot Camp Windows 10? I first bought several USB WiFi dongles because I couldn't get WOL working with the integrated WiFi. Even though WOL works fine on other computers in the same home network. No dice, WOL doesn't wake the MacBook. The Windows program called "WOL - Magic Packet Sender" has Receive mode and it does receive the wake up magic packets just fine when the computer is already on, but still the computer just doesn't wake up on the magic packet if put to sleep.

    Then I bought several USB Ethernet dongles to try the same with ethernet WOL. Still, nothing, it just doesn't work!

    Has anyone gotten WOL to work on a MacBook running Windows?
