HTPC Wakeup Issues - Spyderturbo007 - 2012-04-23 17:24
I currently have a ASRock E350M1 motherboard and I can't figure out how to wake it up from standby without pressing the button on the front of the case. I can't find anywhere in the BIOS to enable a specific sleep state. If I go to the device manager, my eHome Receiver doesn't have the "Allow this device to wake the computer" option.
Is there something I'm missing or is that board unable to wake the computer?

Its the Microsoft one I got with the purchase of a PVR card years ago. I'm not at home to grab a model number right now, but here is a picture I dug up with Google.
I'm using a Harmony One to control XBMC currently.
EDIT -> The receiver has the following on the bottom.
Remote Control and Receiver 1.0A for Media Center PC with Windows

ok, might be your IR Receiver the issue.
im investigating this for awhile and,
so far i think some receiver cant accept remote signals when the PC is OFF or SLEEPING.
again, there's motherboards like the A75M-ITX made by ASROCK
that has advanced bios options to allow usb wake features
but even then, some users have reported that some IR receivers still wouldnt wake the pc...
so, yeah, i strongly believe some receiver cant accept ir remote signals when the PC is OFF or SLEEPING.
im pretty sure that if you would buy an IpazzPort Mini WireLess Keyboard, u'll be able to wake your PC
as its usb dongle is reported working by Me and Beer40.

Can a USB keyboard wake it up? If not wake-on-USB would need to be enabled in the BIOS.

What about something like the ASRock Smart Remote?
It says it can wake the computer from S5 so I guess I could turn it off when I'm done and then start it that way. Provided I could get the Harmony to emulate the Smart Remote. I assume if it will wake the machine from being off, that it would work when it's in S2 or S3 sleep.

Maybe try installing "Instant Boot":

ASROCK SMART REMOTE require your motherboard to have
a CIR header...
RE: HTPC Wakeup Issues - Spyderturbo007 - 2012-04-23 21:38
According to the manual, the E350M1 does have a CIR header. I'm pretty sure I saw it on their list of supported motherboards when looking at the Smart Remote.

then if so, your set
