Poll: How Often Do You Turn Off the Power to Your Internet Connection?

Wow, busy thread. Ignoring the sanctimonious tone of the original post...

I run a Windows XP server at home, and just discovered the wonders of "Wake-on-LAN". The server goes into standby mode automatically when idle. If I need to use it remotely, it only takes a few seconds to come out of standby and start responding to my network request.

I don't know how to configure a Mac server for WOL, but for XP it was pretty simple.
