Is there a VPN out there that lets me access my iMac even when it's in sleep mode? I don't know a whole lot about this stuff.

Thanks

@peglegjack,

What you are looking for is a VPN tool that either integrates WoL [Wake on Lan] functionality, or allows a tool to be run on top of it. Most intel-based macs should have this functionality, as I believe they use Intel-based NICs.

I found one app, iNet WOL by Banana Glue, but personally don't have any firsthand experience with it...

It's strange how often people recommend external VPN services to those wishing to access a particular computer.

To the OP...what system is your iMac running and from what device and OS would you want to be accessing it?
