HTPC Controller with ON/OFF capability
 
Hi all,
There are plenty of remotes that you can use to control your PC, type with, navigate through UI's with, stuff like that. But, I am having a problem finding one that will also turn the PC On/Off and have the other capabilities I mentioned. Can anyone suggest a remote that has the ability to do all those things plus turn the PC On/Off?
Thanks!

go in your BIOS and see if you have a wake on USB setting. If you don't then it doesn't matter because even if you find a remote it won't work.

they make things that look like car key FOBs that "splice" in between the power button and the motherboard header (like this) but it'd be a separate thing and not built into a controller/remote.

Alternatively, Silverstone has a remote that just has the start and reset function, it goes inline to your front panel connector so it should work regardless.
