    Its also possible that if you have remote start on your car you can rig it to turn on the pc. Save yourself the $20 bux .

    "Infrared Computer Remote Control" - the people selling it should realise that it's *radio* and not infrared! (Given away by the aerial and the fact they even say you don't need line-of-sight)

    Vittel, I saw that too, but I wasn't sure if anyone else was going to catch that... The funny thing is, if it were in fact Ir, they're pointing the remote at the BACK of the system!!! That's really convenient! They even put a WATER COOLING device under the accessories catagory, and they have a COOLING catagory already that has nothing for water cooling! What a bunch of idiots at that website.

    I dont know about this one. Infared? So you do have to be pointing the remote to the antenna. And then you really cant do radio frequency for this because your computer might just go on by itself...
    Mine needs to be updated.

    OOOOOOOOK!!!!! Let's get ready to FLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME MEEEEEEE!!!

    Can't believe I've sunk so low as to bring up a 2 y/o thread, but....

    I was thinking, do they make this kinda thing in USB? I'm using a laptop for my install, and I really don't wanna open it and do the power button mod.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Pulled up an old copy on archive.org

    http://web.archive.org/web/200411061...PA-RC-168.html

    ..and from there googled it and found their current website: http://www.buyduplicator.com/gh_PA-RC-168.html

    Looks cool, but just based on the way it plugs into an atx mobo I doubt you'll be able to find something similar for a laptop.

    And I've never heard of a USB device being able to boot a computer, unfortunantly.
