ACPI

Advanced Configuration and Power Interface. Standard for "PC wake-up" with functions such as instant-on, which works like a TV in standby mode. Wake-on-lan means that PC on a network can be turned on from another PC on the net. ACPI is automatically supported by Windows 98.

Install it using the "SETUP /P J" command, I have been told. The function uses VESA DPMS to turn off the monitor. Works together with the APM standard.
