Force resuming from a suspended state

I guess this is more a clarification on how the suspended state works.  Is the processor completely off or is it just running very slowly?  If it is still on a small amount, is it possible to force the computer to wake back up, to respond to some event perhaps?  If it IS possible, I would be very happy if someone could post some code or at least point me in the right direction :-)

Thanks in advance,

-Eric

BTW, I'm using C#... but any .NET compatable language, or even a windows API function to look into would be of significant help.

Some ethernet cards have a Wake On Lan feature, them sense for a "magic packet" in the net. Obviously it will work only if your PC have a NIC and you are in a LAN.

Yeah, I know about that one.  I'm talking about a way for a process running on the computer to wake up the computer... for example, using windows scheduler (or a program I write myself... it matters not really)
