I want to be able to put my PC in standby after its inactive for about a half hour. this way when my stepdad comes in my room he doesnt just pull the plug out of the back of it cause it's basically off and using no power. ive done some searching but everything is addressed for laptops. is it the generally the same for desktops? ps. is it possible to wake a sleeping machine through ssh or by other means from a remote source? thanks for any input, Ryan
