Will this device turn on a computer?

I improperly phrased my last question as to whether this will turn on and off a computer. My only real question is will this WEMO turn ON a computer. I would not use this product to shut down a computer I just want to be able to turn it on remotely. Please let me know if anybody has had any success with this product turning on a PC.

    You can normally change the settings on your computer so it turns on automatically after a power outage / never turns itself off. It may vary a little from PC to PC. If the computer locks up you could then use this device to disconnect / reconnect the mains to the PC, after which your PC will reboot on detecting mains again.
