    I wonder if this couldn’t be implemented much simpler using the wake on modem feature that many motherboards have along with a simple IR receiver on the serial port, using the pin that the wakeup feature uses.

    And you ‘pc’ doesn’t have a serial port either. Talk about a match made in heaven.

    but but but your “pc” is brand new and we are are still upgrading our older PCs. Look around, people don’t bother with old macs- they are worthless. Old PCs will always have a use with upgrades like these.
