Actually, you'd think that HP's MSS would have provided the option to 'Sleep after __ minutes of inactivity', and wake when anyone uses the client connector software to 'Wake Server'.

That would be annoying to have to use the connector to wake it up. Unless you mean that the connector software would intercept outgoing network requests to the server and automatically send the Magic Packet at that point.

That's an interesting idea, to intercept. I like that even better. But I personally wouldn't be put off by having to use the connector to issue a wake command.

The only issue I foresee with that is if you are using something like an xbox or any media streamer to access the content, in which case they would have no way to wake it due to lack of connector.
