I have an IR keyboard. The BIOS is configured
to power-on with any key-press.  I programmed my remote to send
the key-presses from my keyboard. That's also how I send all other
commands. I don't use LIRC at all on the front end.  My keyboard
is  always put away and I only need it if I'm working on that 
computer for some other purpose.
