First, you need to install the Girder plugin for the USB-UIRT, which is available from the web site. Once enabled, you should see the following:
To make it easier to configure the UIRT, I create a new command and rename it to something descriptive. This is optional, since you can temporarily use an existing command to configure the USB-UIRT, as long as you remember to revert back to the previous command configuration. Whatever you do, go to the "plugin" tab and select the USB-UIRT plugin, then press the "setting" button:
This will open the USB-UIRT configuration dialog box. Click on the "configuration..." button (red arrow):
Then select the "remote wake-up" tab. Make sure the "Enable USB-UIRT wake up support" checkbox is checked (red arrow), then simply teach it a new remote code by pressing the "learn" button and pressing the corresponding button on your remote control. The USB-UIRT can learn up to 4 separate remote codes to wake up the PC. Once you are finished, close Girder and you are done.
You should now be able to wake the computer from S3, assuming you have already made the registry tweak, and that the motherboard is powering the USB ports.
