There are some "Wake On LAN", or WOL, BlackBerry apps that will start a computer from a "sleep" state.

Some computers have a setting in their BIOS that allows a small amount of power going to the NIC card, even in a "powered off" state. It can sense a signal (from a WOL app) and start the computer.
