Just download this: WakeOnLan.

Wake a remote Mac behind a router

Yeah, but it looks like that's for sleeping computers on the same LAN as the one you're currently on. This hint is more for people that want to wake up their Mac remotely via the Internet like if you wanted to access your home computer from the office or a friend's house but it's asleep.

So it seems.
But actually it works over the internet if you manually add the host with IP-Address and Ethernet-ID.
I use it for remotely waking an iMac behind a NAT that i have to access for screensharing.

Believe it or not, some people are forced to use a PC at work, and this solution won't work =( The poster's idea is good.
