I am a new user and am ruuning Windows XP Professional on a spare system with Slimserver running.

As opposed to having this machine running all the time is there a way of having the Squeezbox wake up the computer ?

If so what would I need to do please.

Thanks

Yes, the squeezebox automatically sends wake on lan packets when you press the power button on the squeezebox remote.

It may be a good idea to set a static address on your XP machine instead of using DHCP (automatic) IP address.

It may also be a good idea to have your XP machine "sleep" and not "hibernate"
