nit: maybe add a command there so that it's easier to adapt for non-perl people, whom
may not know that above is not some required magic incantation that they must keep as
is. So, e.g.:

#system("wakeonlan AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF")

but as said, just a nit that caught my eyes, no hard feelings on that whatsoever.
