I'll be moving across the country shortly but my desktop computer will be staying put here with power and internet hooked up. I want to be able to connect using my laptop to get or stream files, and run virtual machines.
Ideally I want to run it as energy efficient as possible. That's priority one. What are some things I can do to achieve this? (ie: remove the video card? Underclock the CPU?)
Right now I have a great and slightly modified install of Ubuntu 10.10. I'd like to avoid disrupting the system and add as few packages as possible.
Will it be possible to sleep/wake remotely?
Are there any good articles you can point out to get me started?
