It would be nice to have something contained within pytivo, I don't think that's going to be possible. We could possibly have pytivo create the scheduled task but the problem with this is pytivo may not be running as a service and pytivo probably can't easily tell. So perhaps creating a scheduled task like this would be a job of an installer (like the one I've been developing).
But you still need something running all the time that supports acting as a sleep proxy. Currently I believe there are very few (if any) devices that support this other than apple products. So for the moment it's probably not worth chasing WOL for the Tivo.
The other problem is to do with the way the shares are announced and this is why wmcbrine is suggesting that pytivo should be shut down before the computer is put to sleep. I think the best solution for the moment is to stick with your manual WOL via Android...
Just so you know, my incentive for this was having an unattended PC (my previous pytivo source running 24 hours a day) have a failure that blew a physical hole in the motherboard and costing me about two weeks of recovery work. I have thus promised myself to do whatever I can to minimize the stress on my system going forward. Hence this request. Respectfully submitted.
I don't know what state of the art in hardware is these days, but not too long ago the thermal stresses of cycling a machine on and off was actually a lot more harmful than just keeping it on. Perhaps they've solved this problem by now, however.
As to your weeks of recovery work... having a machine sleep isn't going to help that. Backups will, though.
