    I have a wireless monitor that connects to the computer using remote
    services, it works great except for the fact that I need to go to my
    basement first and then start my PC. I seem to have several option son my
    PC network card but don't understand all of them. APM etc. I've been able to
    get the computer to WAKE when the monitor tries to connect to it but the
    problem I'm having is that the computer also WAKEs when no one is within a
    mile of it. What are the minimal options I need to turn on in order to wake
    the computer?

    Also will it wake the computer from "shutdown" or just hibernation and

    How exactly you set this computer for wake?
    Wrt. wake-on LAN (WOL): not all netcards have this feature.
    It is most common in wired PCI ethernet cards but hardly is supported in
    WLAN cards, especially cheap ones.
    Also Windows does not support WOL for any USB and Cardbus devices.

    I have a (Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC) network card that
    I am doing research on to see if it works. Like I said sometimes it seems to
    work but other times it won't. I think when I have
    ARP/PING, Link Change, and APM Mode ENABLED and only put the computer in
    Standby it will work. BUT only sometimes. Unfortunately the computer also
    just randomly starts back up.
