Advanced Minecraft Server help?
I host a minecraft server for me and my friends, but people aren't online all of the time, and most of the time the server is running wasting my computers resources waiting for people to log on. Is there any sort of small program I could run that listens to the port my server is running on and when someone attempts to connect to the server it will start itself up, and possibly shut itself down when no one is online?

if you host a real server on a remote port, yes, but you'd have to script in something like SQL or PHP. You couldn't use the minecraft server application, the advanced configuration and scripting execution is not possible because the appliction can't have permission to do those things. So you'd need a server and the skills to make an app like that over the server,=.
