    I want to be able to wake up my mac and possibly launch iTunes from my phone or iPad (on my home network or not doesn't matter).

    I have two Apple TV's one is Hard Wired to the iMac and one is wireless on the network.

    Can someone help me? What is a good (prefer free app) where I can do this. Even the hard wired Apple TV will not wake up the iMac.

    I don't know of a specific app to do it, but what you are looking for is something that can "wake on lan" or "wake on wifi"/"wake of wireless". I'm sure there are apps out there. This might get you started in your search.
