As drgeoff points out
WOl would require another computer which isnt really what i was going fordrgeoff wrote:
Thankfully there is no mains voltage anywhere inside a conventional desktop PC except inside the metal box of the PSU.
This is almost perfect but all i really want is to make the power button "wireless" as in not directly connected to the desktop. What is a M74HC4066B1R? Couldnt find it on any of the regular electronic bits websites i wander throughthagrol wrote: This is how I did it: https://github.com/thagrol/fakewake
You could substitute one or more relays for the M74HC4066B1R
Works in parallel with the front panel switches, has web and wol interfaces, monitors PC state (psu and ping) and can trigger both power and reset funstion.
It is a quad FET switch. Generic number is just 4066. Different prefixes and suffixes for various manufacturers and versions. Eg http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/cd4066b-q1.pdf.
In my experience it does, not sure what the ATX spec demands but you can expect at least a couple of amps on the 5v standby line.
Depends on how you define computer. There are WOL send apps available for smart phones and tablets. A full on PC is not needed. It's probably even possible using an arduino (or similar) with ethernet/wifi.
Might be worth investigating remote controlled relay boards. RF not IR though.This is almost perfect but all i really want is to make the power button "wireless" as in not directly connected to the desktop.
