Sleep a Mac with a text or email message

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.
