Sleep a Mac with a text or email message

I'll stick with something a little more sane, like SSH-ing to the machine and telling it myself, thanks.

You assume a fixed IP address. The nice thing about this hint is that it doesn't require one.

I use a similar method of asking a relatives computer for it's world-visible IP address via a known web email address. The Mac sends the current IP address back and SSH works great from then on.
