Sleep a Mac with a text or email message
Authored by: q0rban on Jan 02, '07 11:14:26AM

While SSH is certainly more secure, it is also much more powerful, opening your mac to more risk than someone just putting it to sleep.

One thing to make it more secure would be to change the subject to something a little less common than "sleeper". Maybe a unique letter number combo. Not any of your passwords of course! ;)

I would also have it mail me a return message verifying that mail received the message and ran the script.

Of course if your Mac is asleep I don't think it is going to be able to send you a return email saying it is asleep. hehe
