I have done "small" home automation stuff.
For example my PC goes to sleep at 9AM every morning when idle for 30 minutes so that it doesn't shut down when I am working from home. When I get home and connect to my Wifi network my phone sends a Wake on Lane packet to my computer so by the time I am changed and stuff it is on and waiting for me.
