Awaken -  with WOL command from the router web interface over the wired LAN.  (I've also found that the USB mouse works pretty well 
in some physical circumstances where a mouse can be used - click the left button turns the box back on.  While keyboards should also 
work I've found them much less reliable than mice)  Shame there seems to be no such thing as an IR magic packet in BIOS terms.

Sleep - currently I vnc in for mouse control and choose standby as the remote does not "mouse" once mythtv is shut down.  Be nicer 
if I could suspend/standby from myth, thinking about it, without even closing the FE software would be even better, so that it just 
awakens back into myth....
