We have a Logitech Harmony 720, our HTPC is running W7
95% of what we do with our HTPC we just use the bluetooth keyboard so we only really use the remote for volume and to switch all the components for a given function (i.e. gaming, music, tv, etc)
the problem Ive run into is that my PC won't sleep which is just needlessly burning electricity, I've tried a myriad of options to get it to snooze but none have been 100%. I would like to be able to setup my Harmony to not only shut down my components on power off (TV, receiver, etc) but also send a command to the PC telling ti to goto sleep and similarly on power on for it to revive. I assume this should be quite simple but I'll need some kind of IR receiver I can plugin to the HTPC to pick up the signal and dispatch to the PC as appropriate.
I would very much appreciate any tips or ideas, thanks guys.
