Normally, unless you have a dedicated FAX machine, the PC must be on - and
the FAX program running in receive mode.

It is possible however that some PCs are the exception, or can "wake" when
a FAX is received; check the manual.

If they re-send it a few times until your computer boots.
Modern computers are never really off unless you unplug the
power. You need to set the modem properties to answer a
phone ring. Also, a computer is a lot of hardware just to
send a fax or get one. Why not just buy a stand-alone fax
machine and be done with it.

Let's see, the high cost of fax ink? Spam faxes? The ability to send faxes
as .TIF files via email? I only use my fax machine to send hard copy as
faxes to my computer.
