I have seen people blog about VB6 code that can wake a computer from hibernate but I have yet to see how to do this with .NET. Can anyone please help me with this? I simply want to wake the computer from sleeping at a designated time.

This is close to what I am looking for but I am building a personal alarm clock as a small project and assuming that my computer goes into Sleep or Hibernate mode over night I still need the clock to wake the computer and then go off. With WOL (Wake on LAN) it appears I can awake a computer from another computer but I need to do all this from within the same machine with the same machine. I hope this makes since. Basically, I cannot use WOL (or at least I don't see how) to let the computer awake itself. Any ideas?

Yeah, me either. That's what I'm trying to figure out. I want the .NET way of doing this or some info on how to build a library harnesses the Win32 myself.
