http://www.logmein.com - has a free version, but you'll have to look around for it a bit.

pcAnywhere by Symantec. Costs, but it's pretty slick.

Remote Desktop built into Windows - gave me too much trouble, so I don't use it myself.

As for auto-boot, you'll have to look into the "wake on" features that your motherboard supports - and then match your remote control solution to that.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Hey. You could use NO-IP. It is a free service.
Use it with RealVNC. RealVNC has a hotkey combination that will re-boot your computer remotely.
Could you post your computer's maker and model so we could expand on how to help you?
