Thanks for all the suggestions.
In my case the server would be asleep for 95-99% of the time, hopefully,
so the question would be, how much power does a computer use when asleep?
And is it really easy to "wake-on-LAN".
I was trying this on an old Asus/AMD Sempron 2600+ machine
with complete lack of success.
However, I have lots of other problems with this machine
(which I don't normally use), so that is not a proper test.
