HackADay: Self-waking computer for DIY cloud storage

This one will require more than a bit of normal controller coding, you will need to hack the code on a network router.
The builder [Dominic] wanted to use Owncloud, which as the name suggests allows him to provide his own cloud storage, using his own computer, but to save his electricity bills he didn't want to leave the computer on all day.
His plan was to leave the server normally turned off, and hack the router to turn it back on when somebody wanted to access it.
Its quite a clever solution, have a look for yourself over at http://hackaday.com/2013/02/21/self-waking-computer-for-diy-cloud-storage/
