It's taken me a while to get it working, but finally got my SqueezeBoxen to wake my PC from standby. I coudn't find the Mac address in the properties of the network card, but used "getmac /v" at the command prompt to find it, and it agreed to that in the SB settings.

The reason I couldn't find it in the network card properties was that it wasn't there! Entering it into the 'network address' field made it all work at last.

All I need to do now is find out how to make it go into standby, which currently it only does if I tell it to :(

Have a look at this plugin >>-> http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=48521
It adds a menu item to SC to shutdown, suspend, hibernate , switch to Squeezenetwork or even to shutdown etc after SC is idle for a configurable time.
