Sleep a Mac with a text or email message
Authored by: billjjones on Jan 02, '07 10:29:47AM

I would use this tip in a heartbeat, for certain things, for certain machines, and lose no sleep over it.

People get a little too paranoid about security sometimes. You think the Russians are watching to see if you shutdown your pc by email? And it's not like you're sending a password in this email message, so show me the security risk.

Agreed, for most things ssh is the way to go. But whenever you implement security features you have to assess the risk in determining the right solution. Otherwise we'd all spend infinite amounts of money on security.
