wake works, followed by insomnia
Authored by: Sesquipedalian on Jan 09, '10 07:56:06AM

One way to do such things manually would be to use SSH (a.k.a. remote login) to get access to the command line on your Mac. There are a few paid apps in the App Store that will let you SSH to Mac, or you can install WebShell on your Mac for free, which will give you a secure shell connection through Safari on your iPod Touch. Of course, the free option requires more work on your part, and the interface is a bit quirky, but it does the job for me.

wake works, followed by insomnia
Authored by: m_steiger on Jan 10, '10 05:04:07AM

Thanks very much for your hint.
In the meantime I found out, that my problem of insomnia is caused by the EyeConnect and the EyeConnec*censored*chDog processes that are set up by EyeTV. Those two processes provide the functionality of accessing EyeTV remotely via the Web. If I kill them my MBP sleeps like a baby.
But of course: the reason for which I activated Wake-on-Demand in the first place (connecting to EyeTV remotely) is gone as well ;-(
