There have been, over the years, many attempts at controlling house 
lights, heating, etc. by computer.
Basic problems, of course, included the fact that older versions of 
Windows would eventually lock up after a few days (XP is much better in 
that regard)
Also, having to leave your computer turned on permanently may not appeal 
to some people.
I am not sure that each of this function is not already handled by 
simpler means (timers, clock radios, thermostats, X-10, etc), which 
would explain why the market has never really accepted more complicated
