    I can control my rMBP using the internet and Teamviewer, but when I put my Mac to sleep, it doesn't wake up when I try to log in Teamviewer.

    I tried lots of utilities for Android and iPhone, but I have no idea what data to use for successfully sending magic packets. It is so complicated... :confused:

    I did find my MAC address and put it in one of those apps, but no deal. Also it may ask for my IP address, but there are so many (my computer's, the router, my HDCP internet IP). There are a lot of comments about ports too...

    Anyone has a simple solution for this?

    thanks :)

    I use teamviewer and the only solution I've found to this is:

    System Preferences->Energy Saver->Computer Sleep => Never

    :apple:
