Look into Wake-On-LAN. Here are some methods:

i just set mine so it does not sleep. The display still goes black but it is awake so that i can use Jaadu and eye tv

I'd like a way to remote start it from 'Off'

Wake on LAN is your best option to use.
Note that this cannot be used from outside of the current subnet.

As for starting the computer from Off... thats a little more complicated... Either make a schedule for it to start up, or set up a nifty mobile text/call triggered switch...
