How to enable wake on lan on VMWare client

Problem: You are not able to access the guest OS when the guest OS goes to sleep, and you need to manually wake up the guest OS.

Solution: Edit the Virtual Machine Properties. In the Power Management under Options menu, check the “Put the guest OS into standby mode and leave the virtual machine powered on”, and put a check on the Virtual NIC under the Wake on LAN for virtual machine traffic on.
