    What is the most common way for my to control an iMac at a remote location from my mbpr? Ive used windows programs in that past, but have not done this on the mac.

    TeamViewer works quite well, I have recently controlled both my Macs via an iPad from 50 km away, though even 50,000 km would do.

    Setup both Macs with the same AppleID and use Back To My Mac.

    Keep in mind the iMac needs to be connected to a lan network to use wake on lan if it is set to automatically sleep.

    I use vnc and teamviewer for cross OS compatibility

    you can also use remote desktop connection from MS as well
