If the PC is off, it obviously can't work as an MC extender, however you could strem it from a Windows Home Server NAS. That works great. If you set your PC to sleep, the extender will wake it up when needed, so you don't really need to power it off. Sleep mode works really well on W7 and uses very very little power.
