Is it possible to Use a magic packet to wake up my desktop server over wifi?

my desktop server at home is connected to the internet via wifi and I want to be able to use a magic packet to start it up from my laptop at school which is also connected to the internet via wifi. Is it possible and if so how do I set it up?

    Magic packets don't work with WIFI (at least not the last time I checked). You must wire the server at home.

    The computer already has to be on, i suggest going into the screen saver options and making it so it wont sleep, that way its always up and ready for you. Hope this helped.
