Apologies if this has been answered - I didn't find anything when I searched.
I have purchased a hewlett-packard fastview Serial IR remote control and receiver, to use with my Mythbuntu 8.04 box (combined backend/frontend). I should receive it shortly.
I am trying to figure out whether this remote can be configured to bring the computer out of standby? I have managed to get mythbuntu to manually go to S3 standby when I click suspend. Eventually, I will try to get it to auto-standby when idle, but not at the moment (I know there are a whole host of issues with that).
Anyway, my issue is that I know I can assign the power button on the remote to execute a suspend.sh script (i.e. hitting power on the remote sends the pc to S3 suspend), but can I wake it back up again? My motherboard is an ECS l7vmm2 (I think version 1.0a, but I'm not sure). The specs say it supports wake-on-lan, but I'm not sure about wake-on-anything else... In the bios, there is an option for wake-on-pci event, and the note beside it says this is required for wake-on-usb to work. Does this also apply to serial receivers?
Certainly, pressing any keys on my keyboard, or moving the mouse, brings the comp out of S3.
Any help/advice you can offer would be much appreciated.
