will back to my mac work if the computer you are going back to is in sleep mode? Lid closed?
Unfortunately no, it won't work when a machine is asleep. A sleeping machine has no active network connection and the hard drive is not spinning.
So do people leave their macs awake when they go to work? Seems odd.
Echo'd. This should work. I don't think you can WoL over airport though so you'll have to have a wired ethernet connection in order to remotely wake it and use that feature.
I hope you guys are right. I can't see Apple giving .Mac WOL privileges though. Hopefully I'm wrong, like usual.
I just don't see the point of this then I guess. I wouldn't leave my computer on constantly just "in case" I need to access something on it when I was away. Granted it may be useful for networked computers throughout a house or something maybe. It sounds like an awesome idea but I put my mbp asleep when i'm away.
