Hello,

Symantec Endpoint Protection does not have the feature for WOL / Hybernation.

Currently, That is not possible with SEP. You would need to use something like LANDesk or similar to "wake" the machines first.

However, There is an MS article stating that apps can be programmed to instigate a wakeup form sleep state:

Check this Thread with similar issue:

However, Created an IDEA -

Let's promote the same.

Hope that helps!!

Hi,

 

Whether it is possible or not.

James given Symantec Endpoint Protection Integration Component idea. whether that will help for this case. ?

This works in tandem with SEPM but is not exclusive to SEPM. It requires Endpoint Protection Integration Component, which I believe is apart of Altiris.
