Is there anything to turn on computer with remote control?

I have an HTPC is a non-HTPC case, and was just wondering if there was something I could buy to actually power on my computer with a remote control - rather than having to hit the power button all the time. Thanks!!

    I use this.

  2. If you're already using XP MCE or Vista Home Premium for the HTPC media controlling you can just use something like this: Logisys Wireless Remote MultiFunction Panel $35

    If you want an option that doesnt require using a drive bay this option will work:
    VLSystem M-Play MINI Remote Controller for PC $35 @ FrozenCPU

  3. If one has a boot rom on his Lan card, one might "boot on lan".

    You will need a DHCP/PXE server however, it does work.
