    Any idea if it's possible to control my iMac like to put it to sleep while I'm lying n bed? Lol

    Is it possible using the Apple Remote app? Or an Apple Remote?

    At least a few of these will work if you have an iphone/ipad.

    There are options for Android too.

    Using remote:

    I found out this App called Remote Mouse you can download to your Mac and iPhone to control mouse on your Mac using your iPhone or you can just click on asleep or restart button directly from the app...

    Cool simple app download it!
