Send Wake-on-Lan _Packet

Assuming you are talking about a Mac, instead of Wake-On-LAN, perhaps  
use something that will wake up your mac kiosk at specific times and  
then make sure you hit that window to do all your remote maintenance.

The Mac-ish things I read about online were iCal and Automator. I'm  
certain that there is probably something you can set in cron or some  
other unix command to do what you need.

But ... why not have the kiosk send you the file before it goes to  
sleep for the night? Seems like that would be easier.
