    Those settings are in Windows and dependant on your laptop - there are no BluOS Settings to enable those. Check your laptop documentation for WOL or stay awake on network activity options.

    Ok let me be more precise.

    I would like the Bluesound application to be able to send a Magic Packet to a Windows server to wake it up.

    If it is not the case (which would be very unfortunate) could you plan to add this functionnality for a future release ?

  • In SMB 3.0, KeepAlive Packets are sent from the Server to the Client - this is still a Windows configuration issue to keep the connection from your Bluesound Player to Windows.

    That being said, BluOS does periodically poll the server to ensure it is still there and will reconnect if it is not.

    SMB 3.0 has been supported in BluOS since mid-2020

    To me the KeepAlive Packets have a different purpose than the Wake On Lan (WOL) function

    I doubt that you can wake up an asleep (supend to ram) computer with SMB3 Keep alive packet
    (anyway if I am wrong please let me know how to proceed)

    On linux you have some scripts like Etherwake that will be able to send a Magic Wake-On-LAN packett.
