Intel to push Wake on LAN

FUD Zilla writes Intel will push Wake on LAN with its P/G4x-series chipsets:
It allows you to leave your PC in standby mode and then wake it up remotely over the Internet to gain access to your data. It can also be used for making remote backups over the Internet or for routing VoIP calls.

The good news is that this will work through a firewall and it should be very easy to set up compared to some of the current remote PC access solutions. It will require some software to be installed and we don't have any details on how this works.
