Intel has released the details of a new latest technology which will allow users to get more out of their computers, being able to power their systems and get access to their documents from afar. From next month consumers will start seeing motherboards featuring their new embedded Remote Wake technology that enables consumers to “wake up” their home PC from an energy-efficient sleep mode to access all their media, anytime, from any Internet-connected device.
The Remote Wake technology will offer users the possibility of waking up their home computers from sleep mode through a Voice over Internet protocol (VolP) call, enabling users to remotely access a significant number of utilities, such as videos, music, webcam feeds and live TV shows. Using this technology, PC users will no longer have certain media and communication applications inaccessible when their computers are in sleep state to save electricity. It will also let computers automatically return to a normal, full-powered state when a call comes in. The computer can activate its microphone and loudspeaker to alert the user, then connect the call. Users can also download files, movies, songs while there PC is on the sleep mode, that is hibernating. This will enable them to save a lot of electricity as most users like us download a large amount of data and keep our PC on all time even while we are sleeping.
The first Intel motherboards with the Remote Wake capability will be shipping in the next month. The four initial Remote Wake motherboards will be for desktop computers and will need an Internet connection via Ethernet cable, as Wi-Fi doesn’t work in sleep mode. Certainly a technology to watch out for.
