Windows 7: Is It possible to turn the computers power on wirelessly

Is It possible to turn the computers power on wirelessly

I don't know whether this would matter If I'm asking this question In a windows 7 forum \ Linux forum whatever but I am running 7.

Say If I open up my desktop computer and do something\add something to the wireing of the power button , would I then be able to turn my computer with A wireless controller or even from my portable laptop that I use by clicking an aplication on my desktop that will then turn on my desktops power.

Is anything or has anyone ever made this possible?
