I am still an HTPC newb, so is EventGhost the preferred way of having windows boot, rather than the standard GUI?

If using Windows, EventGhost is not required. You need an IR receiver to pick up remote commands and some knowledge of your computer. In Windows power settings, you want to determine what happens when the power button is activated. Some computers can be started from a complete off state or from hibernation -- this is dependent on the motherboard. Most can be powered on and off from a sleep state.

So, you would want to go into Windows power settings and choose the power off state for your computer. The safe choice is to put the computer to sleep. Then, when the power command is issued from the Harmony remote, the computer wakes from sleep.

Launcher4Kodi can be configured with Windows power settings to automatically open and close Kodi when the computer is waked and put to sleep.
