I put a new videocard in my HTPC last week and being the noise nazi that I am the PC is now louder than I would like. So I am toying with the idea of putting the whole thing in the basement and getting a USB hub that I would stick in the entertainment center. Only problem with this is I really don't want to run down to the basement every time I want to turn on the computer.
Is there an on/off switch I would be able to plug into the hub? I don't think USB devices are even powered if the PC is off though so I don't know if something like this could even exist. Are there alternatives?
