This could all be done with IR as well. You could leave the PC in sleep / standby mode and use an IR wireless USB keyboard. Send any keyboard stroke IR code to wake it up and use the sleep/standby ir code from the keyboard to "shut it down" so to speak.

Some wireless keyboards have programmable shortcuts to launch programs, which only requires a single IR command too.

Make sure you turn off auto standby in the power options.

You can pick up IR keyboards for $5-10 on eBay.
