Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t

I keep hitting the WakeUp key and after a few minutes it might wake up my Mac Mini and sometimes it won’t. I get frustrated and go to my computer room and just hit the keyboard or mouse to wake the Mac up. I’ve monkeyed with the sleep settings on my Mac but I get the same results.

Started working again in latest iOS 13.2 release, after being broken for a bit.

Works very well, love the LAN/Internet options

This WOL tool has everything you need. You can configure an internal (LAN) and an external (Internet) address. This is very useful when you're in and out of your network.
