I  just downloaded WakeOnLan 0.90 From version tracker.  It's the latest 
and works on Leopard. BUT:

Wake-on-Lan is not going to work. the Kiosk machine is connected via 
Airport and WiFi protocol as of Nov 97 does not yet support sending 
Wake-on-Lan packet to a Airport connected machine.

Any other solutions?
