    It is short for "Wake up" so you can say it someone who is literally asleep or it can also be used when someone is being a bit slow on the uptake.

    It is more often spelt "wakey wakey". Noddy's answer is perfect on the meaning. It is a friendly and informal expression, so you would use it with children, friends or partners. You would not use it in a formal situation, for example a "wake-up" telephone call in a hotel.

    it's BE slang for "time to wake up" or "up and at 'em!" You see the expression on the sleep masks of Virgin Atlantic airways.
