I'm curious if there is an inexpensive way to turn on a Windows XP PC from a remote location. The PC, which has my entire CD collection stored on the hard drive, has always been turned on using the power button on the front of the unit.
From my patio, I can use a Receiver web control feature and netbook's web browser to power on a Yamaha Rx-v3900 AVR. It would be nice to power on the PC from the patio as well. Both components are in the same location, if that matters.
