The title says it all.

I'm about to put together a new frontend. Currently I use a homebrew IR receiver, and I can put the box into Suspend via the remote (using irexec), but I still have to reach into the cabinet to switch the box on.

We have a 9-month old who is just starting to explore, and I'd like to be able to lock the glass door shut, as we did with the last one (pre-myth). So that brings me to the question, is it easy to setup Resume with a USB Receiver? The mobo I'm buying does support this option, but I'm unclear as to how it actually works in practice. Will the system wake from any input on the IR receiver, or only the power button?

Any advice on the best one that's available in the UK?

TIA,

Simon
