    The serial port has a pin (#9 on a 9pin D-SUB) called RI (Ring Indicator). This one's pulled on an incoming call. Check whether your serail cable controls this signal.

    I'm thinking small circuit to detect changes on pin 9 and turn on the power circuit, then the PC. Even in hibernate my setup appears to use about 80mA. I'm not sure why. If I can solve that maybe I can configure the machine to wake on modem and avoid all hardware. Shame I just bought a USB cable after struggling to track down USB instead of serial!

    Definitely time to try out PhoCo and see what it can do.
