I wouldn't mind it. Wake-on-LAN is a pain in the ass if you don't have the MAC address written down somewhere (or aren't VPN'd in). I'd like to save on my electricity bill by twilighting my server until some network activity comes in on some regular TCP port (I assume port knocking could be a trigger). The same with my desktop in case I failed to push a branch to the server, I can just poke it and SSH in.

Is that even an option these days? I still can't hibernate my machines reliably (suspend works though; I really want the hybrid version).

Ha! As if. At least with EZPass (northeast US only?), it's a prepaid system that automatically refills when the account drops below $20 or so. You don't even own the gizmo (the Department of Transportation usually does), so if you lose it, you have to pay to replace the thing.
Not to mention that they know when you were at exit A and B…which figures to an average of 70mph so there will be a fine waiting for you when you get home too!
I like the term :) .
