turning a pc on via mobile phone Answered

Would it possible to wire the speaker of a mobile phone to the on/off of a standard pc so you could turn it on with a simple phone call? Not exactly a burning question but the idea has been floating around in my head for a while now, but i'm no closer to investigating.. Being completely devoid of network attached storage, that would be the next best way to access my files or store stuff when not at home without leaving the pc on all the time.. when finished it can be turned off via VNC or logmein. I've tried all ways to get wake on lan working of course, but can't stop the fans from running even when in standby/hibernation, and lately i can't even get it to stay in that mode without booting straight back into xp.. cheers in advance! ade
