I have my pc and ps3 on a share network. My ps3 can access some files from my pc like movies and stuff. My pc is set to sleep after 30 minutes. Will my pc go to sleep if I am accessing movies on the ps3? Is there a way to wake up my pc from sleep with my ps3 by trying to access it's files?

turn on Wake on Lan in the BIOS and see if that helps

emerald: I do not see any Wake on Lan in power management. Is there a way to do this from windows?

Ricky_Critic: The keyboard already is set to wake the pc from sleep.

What I am looking for: I would like to set my pc to sleep after 30 minutes of idle unused use and have it also wake if a computer is trying to access it from the network.

For example: I leave my pc on and don't touch it, computer goes to sleep after 30 minutes. I leave my pc on and access a movie from my ps3 or another computer on the network, the pc will not go to sleep after 30 minutes if I am not using it.
