Just bought a "Tranquil" media centre with an Intel Desktop Board DH57JG and a Intel Core i3 processor.Everything works brialliantly except for one problem, i can't put the PC into standby or re-wake it using the MCE remote like i used to be able to do on my previous PC. The OS i'm using is Windows 7 64 bit.
Any help would be really appreciated.

What operating system were you using before? Have you turned on the Wake on Lan setting in the bios? What version of MCE are you using?

Edit: The software was originally designed for earlier versions of windows, however there is an updated beta version that should help with your windows 7 problems found here
