Thanks for joining the NUC community.
While Intel has not tested and validated Intel® NUC on your Linux version, we know that other customers have successfully installed OpenELEC and working properly.
Intel suggests you check your Linux distro's website and forums at OpenELEC Mediacenter - OpenELEC Forum - Category Index for peer assistance with this issue.
I have configured my remote according to that HOW-TO. Everything works fine except power/wake up
People here confirm that power/wake up not working: [How-To] The NEW XBOX One Media Remote On Openelec (post 51 for example).
I have found interesting thing here: OpenELEC Mediacenter - OpenELEC Forum - Topic: Fixing Intel NUC's! Please help... (1/9) (posts 5 and 7). Its not exactly for my NUC, but I have tried that also - no effect. What can you say?

Removing bios battery doesn't help.
I think my NUC just doesn't have power/wake code in bios for my remote control.
It would be great if Intel could add some new function to bios and we could program which ir signal code can power on\wake up NUC. Such a function can solve a lot of user's problems with different remote controls.
Or maybe there is some bios edit tool where I can edit that codes?
Confirming I have the identical issue. By following this tutorial I got power-off working.
Some chap suggested reverting to the May 2014 BIOS but this had no effect, so I'm back on latest (FY0052.bio).
I'm eager to find a solution to this problem with my NUC.
