Boxee Box Waking up when Shut Down
Just have a quick question, I typically keep my boxee just in sleep mode. But when I sometimes turn it off I was wondering if there is a way to wake on lan the boxee? Can I ping it somehow or how would I get it to power on? Right now I have it on wireless but I have another that is on Wired that I didn't try pinging or connecting to when it was shutdown.
What are my options if any?

Any harm in just leaving it on (for those of you who do)?

Not that I know of. And I leave mine on most of the time.

But apart from that my Boxee Box is on 24/7...
