I don't really see the point of this.

First, you have to put PC next to TV, unless you have long HDMI cable.
You have go over there to push power button to start PC, unlike consoles, which you can start by pushing center button on your wireless controller.

Second, on Windows you have to start Steam first and then turn on Big Picture mode, which requires using mouse. even if your mouse is wireless, it's kinda annoying to use it without desk to put it. Moreover, if you have a wireless mouse, it's just easier to click on the shortcut and start up the game straight away, then use gamepad.

Because Wake-On-Keyboard or Wake-On-Mouse is a setting that has never been a part of Windows.. Not sure if there's the same for a controller, but I don't see how it couldn't be implemented.
