Wake from sleep/hibernate!

Hey guys, need help!

Current setup is Windows 7 used as an HTPC
MCE IR receiver
Logitech Harmony 700
XBMC as my media player

Now everything works fine, i am able to control XBMC with my remote, turn off and on, etc. My problem is when the PC is off. With the remote i have the option to choose either "watch tv" to "watch xbmc". Say i have chosen watch tv and once done watching tv i "power off all" on the remote, everything turn off but the PC turn on after being in hibernation mode. I believe this happens because windows only has PowerToggle and turns off or on regardless of the state that it is on. However this is annoying and trying to find a solution!

Now i know that the Windows can be woken up by either pressing any key on the keyboard or moving the mouse around. Is there a way to specify what key wakes up the pc instead of any key? this would enable me to choose how i turn on the pc in my Harmony setup by specifying what keystroke to send to the IR receiver, as it is acting as an MCE Keyboard.

Any insight or experience?

thanks!
