Hi,

I haven't tried this and it looks like it may not be very flexible. I noticed setting for "Power On By RTC Alarm" in my BIOS(Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe). Maybe your mobo has something similar. It should work for a one-time event, but it seems like it might be alot of effort required by multiple events for a PVR.

Good luck,
Doodah

Ummm...ya know...you get that for free with Windows Media Center 2005 (as long as you put your computer into Suspend or Hibernate mode). If you are running MCE 2005, just enable Hibernate in your Power Options and make sure that ACPI is set to S3 in your BIOS and you should be good to go.

If you are not using MCE 2005, I can't help you. :D

If you're running linux, nvram-wakeup is a solution.
