Yes most motherboard support wake up from USB, from COM (Ring signal), 
but it's useless unless the deveice (Receiver) support this feature.
In other words, unless you see a device that allow you to program a

not aware of any IR receiving device supporting this, please do let 
me/us know if there is one =)
