Tight VNC and Sleep

Hey. i use tight vnc to virtual desktop my windows 7 computer to my ubuntu laptop. it works alright its very laggy and i cannot go to the start menu or basicly do anything that involves opeing up a window that isnt already open. but thats not my problem. i like that my computer goes into sleep when im not useing it. however when its in sleep i cannot connect to it from my laptop. i also like to connect to it threw my xbox and play movies and listen to music. but i cannot do this if it is in sleep. is there a way that when i try to connect to it via my xbox or my laptop that it wakes up?

your nic sleeps when your computer sleeps. You'll have to set the nic to wake the laptop.
