Power up IP phone Remotely after energywise has shut it down

All,

We have a situation where we power down half our offices IP phones using energywise. We monitor the power usage using Solarwinds. No problem. However because or PC's are connected to the phones we can't use remote desktop to get to our PC's because the network will be down.

Cisco IP phones don't respond to WOL packets. Tried that. Is there any way we can remotely power up an IP phone outside of energywise if we need to remote desktop to our PC's.

You will need to power back up the switchport using EW or manually.  The phones themselves are done until the switch decides to give them power.

Thanks for the reply, I was just wondering if there any software out there that could power the devices without the users logging into the switch to do it.
