Default RDM+ Questions

Please Login to Remove!

So i am trying it and i have a few questions; appreciate your help:

1. Is it the best app of its kind?
2. It's somehow slow on the BB; is it because such an app is slow in general, or is it because of the connection, or because of the low RAMs memory whereas such app requires high RAMs and powerful CPU?
3. So i can reboot and shutdown my computer, but can i remotely start it, because i really couldnt....is there a way where you can remotely start a computer which is shutdown or is turning it on manually the only way?

Thanks alot Guys.

I don't think there is any app that will start a computer that is physically turned off.

For me it's a winner.

I have been using RDM+ since 'the old days' and always found it little slow and hard on a small screen, but now that I am on the STORM2 it is much better. Very Acceptable. It does what I need. The bigger screen is great and the REVA speed makes it fast. Its speed is limited to the fact that when you show something on your phone that it hasn't been shown before, RDM+ needs to send the screen over the airwaves to your phone. Also, all commands need to be sent back from your phone, to the computer, executed, and sent back to the phone with a screen refresh. That is no easy task.

Of course, there would be no way to turn on a computer that has the power OFF but you can reboot a computer from remote.

There are some "Wake On LAN", or WOL, BlackBerry apps that will start a computer from a "sleep" state.

Some computers have a setting in their BIOS that allows a small amount of power going to the NIC card, even in a "powered off" state. It can sense a signal (from a WOL app) and start the computer.
