    If the NIC supports "WOL" (Wake On Link / Wake On Lan / Remote Wake Up). The WOL cable is connected to the motherboard (make sure its right as it can damage your power supply), and the NIC driver is properly configured. Also, your BIOS must support WOL, and the WOL option in your BIOS setup must be enabled.

    If everything I mentioned is setup, then yes it should be possible.

    Software (to wake the PC):

    LANDesk Client Manager. This software comes with most WOL-compliant motherboards.

    Magic Packet by Advanced Micro Devices (AMD). This software is a free download from AMD.

    WOL - Wake On LAN client (open source)
