Wake On LAN (WOL)


Your Seagate NAS can conserve energy by entering deep sleep mode. Use NAS OS to schedule deep sleep mode when no one accesses the Seagate NAS and wake it up when your office is ready to work. See Eco for more information on deep sleep mode.

Seagate Network Assistant can wake your NAS from deep sleep mode. This feature is called Wake on LAN (WOL). Follow the steps below:

  1. Right-click the Seagate Network Assistant icon in your taskbar (Windows) or choose it in the menu bar (Mac).
  2. Select Wake Up a Device.
  3. Select the NAS from the pull-down menu.
  4. Choose Wake up.


Note on the MAC address list: If the list is empty the first time you launch Wake Up a Device, enter the device's MAC address in the field and select Wake up. Once entered, Seagate Network Assistant will keep the device's MAC address on the list.


You can also wake up a NAS in deep sleep mode by applying a short push to the power button.
