For a school project i'm doing, I wanted to somehow code an app which would have the ability to turn on my PC, was wondering if this was possible?

Its in the realm of possible. The only way I could see it being possible is using Wake on Lan:


It basically allows a system that is "off" to be powered up when a packet is sent to the NIC. It is used more heavily in the IT Professional world as its useful for updating and troubleshooting remotely.

That would be the best option I could think of. Now getting your app to be able to send the required packet is up to you. I think you will have a lot of research to do and a lot of trial and error.
