[Disclaimer This is not a question about WOL]
I have a simple setup where I would like to use the Raspberry as a wake on lan unit. I use the Raspberry to stream the mac addresses of the relevant PC from a REST service using curl. Then I've written a small script using etherwake to send a magic WOL package to all the mac addresses I got from the service. The scripts runs as a service, so when the raspberry starts the magic takes off.
The idea is that the raspberry is turned on and off with the light, so when the light goes on the PCs starts, and when the light goes off the PCs turn off correct. This is achieved with a simple ping function to the Raspberry, when it misses 10 ping request the PC turns off.
So my question(s) is:
- How stable is the Raspberry, when I take the power each day?
- Is there something I should be aware of?
- What about writing/reading to the sd-card, can it malfunction?
The system is reliable that the Raspberry starts, or else the WOL packages are not send :)
