Just to be clear, we're talking about this wiki, right?

If so, I already read it, but I'm not clear about what 'usb receiver' you're
talking about. I have a USB wireless keyboard, but 'space bar' only powers
the machine when it's off, it does not work when it's in S3 sleep for some

If you meant a USB IR receiver, do you mean that if any data is received on
the serial port (not just 'ring'), it will trigger a wakeup?
(I would think not, so I'm confused)

Right now I can wakeup using either:
- pushing the power button
- wake on lan packet
- RTC timer set before suspend

Please tell me what I'm missing to wakeup using a remote control that does
not involve soldering and "if you do this, you might fry your system" if
possible :)
