The wake up issue is an ongoing problem that I haven't solved yet. USB devices will typically only work from S1 or S3 sleep modes. Hibernation or full standby (S4) does not usually work with USB devices. PS2 devices such as a keyboard or mouse will wake many motherboards. Soundgraph makes an internally connected remote called the iMon that hooks into the start button to start the PC. It's a pretty bad remote otherwise and is not fully compatible with universal remotes. Wake on LAN (WOL) is another possibility but requires another PC to accomplish. Some routers can also send WOL signals.
At 20 I had a good mind. At 40 I had money. At 60 I've lost my mind and my money. Oh, to be 20 again. --Scary
