Possible to wake PC w/o Magic Packet...w/o unwanted wakes?

Setting up a Win 10 PC for shares, videos, which will be used lightly. I would like to have it sleep, and not have to do a separate operation to wake it with a magic packet before accessing.

Is this possible?

Any suggestions appreciated.
