Intel's motherboards with Remote Wake
Remote Wake is an improved version of the existing Wake-on-Network (wired or wireless). The idea is that without Remote Wake, a sleeping PC can't perform some tasks like accepting VOIP calls (Skype). That's not limited to VOIP, but it's a good example (recording TV could be another one). Remote Wake allows you to put your computer to sleep and save power, but makes it possible for applications that uses the Remote Wake protocol to wake the PC up, if needed. four new motherboards will have this feature: GD45FC, DG45ID, DG43NB and DP43TF.
