This one's about as crazy as the string remote trick, but maybe it'll work
with some tinkering. If you're on a network and your card supports
wake-on-lan then you could shut off the box and have another server send it
a magic packet. If it does it everyday you'll have yourself a video alarm
Just a thought!

Actually, you can use the remote to turn on your machine.  Here are the
1) Aim carefully at the power-on button of the computer
2) Throw the remote at the button from 1)
3) Hope you hit it

bonus: tie a string to the remote so you can retrieve it after you've turned

on the computer.

:-) just coulldn't help it.
