Stefan may respond with more detail, but the use cases we submitted for WebRTC consideration describe this as the ability to invoke an application and pass an event to it, whether it is running (or not) at the time of the event reception by the device. By running I mean that the app, or its user agent (in the case of a web app executing under a user agent), are not currently executing on the device, in any state. This "wake up and deliver" capability may require a multi-step device-internal process, but the overall goal covers both actions.

What exactly do you mean by "wake up"?
