Remotely power cycle a pc? Cheaply

I have a workstation that needs to be power cycled remotely when it freezes up. Any solutions that are not $500 IP based power strips.

$100 IP based power strip is good
Any other possibilities?

It's a workstation. So I don't know that there is an ILO for those.

Anyone know where I can get a 35 mile ext. cord? I'll probably need a bunch of those speed bump cord protectors too.

I'm trying to figure out what causes it. But the people that need it, work in the evenings and remotely. So when it goes out, they're done for the whole evening till someone goes in to the office in the morning.

It's also completely intermittent. So it's fine for 2 weeks, then it happens 2 days in a row.

Run a reboot scheduler... like every 4-7 days if you can't figure out the actual problem (probably memory leak that takes that much time to work up to it being catastrophic).

There are power strips ($100+) that you can cycle remotely....like the X10 device..

Everyone Exaggerates

We're being taken for a ride... agaaaaaaain.....

We talked about doing that. I ran memory diagnostics and it tested good. But who knows.

I'm not talking about the chips themselves... but rather the programs running on them...that possibly contain programming errors to create such a condition.

Start tracking the processes on the box and the amount of memory each is using... you might then find a culprit... just a hunch...

If you only need a temporary solution... Put another computer right next to the problem one and position it so that the CDROM tray will push a reset button. Or you can create some contraption with levers/wires. So whenever you need to reboot the first computer, you eject a CDROM on the second computer remotely. I've never tried it myself, but I heard many times about it and saw pics.

Now we're getting somewhere. Ingenuity. I like it. But I have to hold the power button to shut it down. I don't know that this will hold it before the CD rom goes back in.
