I just finished reading the subject post Remotely turning on or rebooting a frozen computer and have further questions.

I'm very interested in remote access to my server, in particular restarting it when it is in a stalled or blue-screen state.

How can I determine if my server is AMT enabled? It has a GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Motherboard and Intel Core i5-2500K CPU.

It is not enabled, as AMT is only for vPro processors from Intel (see here for the list) and yours is not one of them.

The Intel Z68 is a desktop/Gaming chipset and does not appear to support AMT. You might look at adding a board that allows Lights Out management but likley not inexpensive. Any I have seen are from server vendors like Dell, HP and IBM/Lenovo and are often itegrated now.
