No, sorry but it can't be done with LogMeIn.

 

LMI does not support computers turned off, or in sleep or hibernation modes.

In Vista there's an option to "wake on network" or "boot from network" something like that.  If you turn that on, your computer will boot up or at least wake up from sleep mode when the network card receives a signal.

 

The discription in windows is that when you turn this option on it keeps power going to your network card only, and will "listen" for a network signal to boot up.  I believe this option is under the power managment section in control panel.  I'm not sure if it works with LogMeIn but it may be worth a shot.

As of this time, LMI products DO NOT SUPPORT the Wake on LAN feature. 

 

Maybe in the future they will, but not at this moment.

Re: Can you boot your computer through Log Me In?

Although officially not supported i managed to use logmein when my computer is in sleep mode. I altered two settings:

 

1. Enable WakeOnLAN on the appropriate NIC

 

2. I had to Enable this same feature in the BIOS (i have an onboard NIC)

 

The only strange thing i have is that i cannot put it back in sleep mode. Somehow when i press sleep mode through logmein my computer locks down and does not enter sleep state. Off course this is not a big thing since it enters sleepmode after a while on it's own.
