    I have an apple remote control (the new aluminum ones). As I have log in password set up on my mac, when my mac is asleep, and I want to use my remote control, my mac wakes up with the window asking for my log in password, as it happens when you wake your mac up. Before entering the password, you cant see the "front row" screen.

    Is there anyway that I can enter my password remotely using my apple remote? Or do I have to come back to my mac, enter the password by keyboard and then be able to use remote control?

    If not possible to use apple remote; maybe some good iPhone app instead?

    Thanks guys for helping on this.

    Do you need the password on?

    And, how do you think you would enter a password with a 6 button remote control?

    You can get an app for your iPhone that lets you use the iPhone as a keyboard.
