I have a 7042-CR8 HMC. I would like to configure "Wake on Lan". Is this
possible? I googled for this and what I found says the hardware for some
models of the HMC support this but it's up to the software. This makes it
sound like if you initialize the hard drives and replace it with Windows,
and run Windows based applications instead of HMC, it can be done.

Apparently there is other interest:

Scenario:
Power fails.
You're running on UPS.
You're ordered to shutdown the Power 8 (it's ok, you're replicated) and
the HMC to save remaining battery life for other devices.
Extended power outage. You go home.
Power is restored.
You could bring up the Power 8 remotely if the HMC was running.
