you can and can't let me explain why.

If your work is protected behind a firewall server you might not be able to access a outside source.

Now for sharing look under google for mac screen sharing apps over network they will help you from there.

I've never been able to get Wake on Lan working over wireless. Check out this video for more information.

I was able to get it working with ethernet using port forwarding though.

Put the laptop to sleep and call it via WiFi, after you have set all BIOS-options the way you think they should be.
