Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center 2005 introduced a new feature called Away Mode. This feature allows a computer to appear off to users, but still be able to perform tasks that do not require any user input (such as recording scheduled TV shows for Media Center).
An Away Mode white paper has been published on MSDN very recently that provides detailed information about what Away Mode does to the system, how to install, configure and uninstall it, and what hardware it requires. I encourage you to take a look if you are interested in some behind-the-scenes about how Away Mode functions.
