REMOTE WAKE/SLEEP-ON-LAN SERVER (RWSOLS)
The Remote Wake/Sleep-on-LAN Server (RWSOLS) is a simple webapp that runs on your Raspberry Pi to turn it into a remotely accessible Wake/Sleep-On-LAN Server. This is very useful when you have a high-powered machine that you don't want to keep on all the time, but that you want to keep remotely accessible for Remote Desktop, SSH, FTP, etc. Wake-On-LAN packets cannot be forwarded through a router, so to wake up a remote machine behind a router, you need to have something on its local network to wake it up. That's where RWSOLS comes in. RWSOLS can control an unlimited number of remote machines on its local network, and is capable of waking them up (any OS) or putting them to sleep (only Windows remote machines). It can be configured to use SSL encryption or it can be run over traditional HTTP.
A very detailed set of installation instructions can be found in the GitHub Wiki.
