Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

How can I turn on HoloLens remotely?

Is there a way to turn on HoloLens remotely?

I have to run experiment on HoloLens but I don't have any idea to run turn on hololens remotely.


  • Mine (my hololens) seems to wakeup ... but perhaps that's just me. That woke up.

    Anyway, there used to be a feature via network devices to allow to turn on a machine and get it to ... well, load up software remotely. There needed to be a network setting, a permission ... to turn this on.

    If the network device in the Hololens has this feature ... and Windows 10 allows ... then it should and would likely work for you.

    Signed, a monkey-minded fool ... perhaps too simple for you ... my truthy suggestion i mean. Warning, don't read posts by Utekai ... you might get infected with Truth.
