I have a small ubuntu server set up as a media server and web server for my home network. The usage of the server however is less than 5% of the day, so I am trying to find a neat solution to

  • wake up when someone accesses the server
  • sleep/hibernate when the server is inactive for more than 10 minutes

Is there a simple solution, or a package already available? or am I going to have to resort to building a set of scripts to do this for me?

I am running 10.04LTS, in a headless server mode.
