    Does it show up in your devices list? May need installing.

    is there an associated application on the pc? or just drivers?



    you pressed the hot key to turn it on?

    the application needs to be installed for it to recognise the hot key press.

    looking at the manual it doesn't say anything about it accepting remote commands, only that it will transfer to other devices.

    "The computer's Fast Infrared (FIR) port allows you to do wireless data transfer with other IR-aware computers and peripherals such as PDAs, mobile phones, and infrared printers. The infrared port can transfer data at speeds of up to 4 Mbps at a distance of up to one meter."
