    So, I have Orb and Airvideo sitting on my iphone, but unfortunately they don't do too much good if my Mac is sleeping. Is there ANY app that allows you to wake up a sleeping Mac (with Leopard, not Snow Leopard) from another location that is not on LAN? I travel a lot and would just leave my Mac on, but sleeping while I'm away if I could figure out a way to wake it up! BTW, I have a new Airport Extreme in case there happens to be any settings I would need to address there as well.

    (There was a thread in another forum here, but I thought this would be a better place for this question.)

    Without knowing what those programs are that you mention....

    You know you can schedule when your mac is awake and sleeping under settings? Would that help?

    Snow Leopard does allow a wake-on-wireless feature, but I am pretty sure you would need to both have direct Wifi access to your computer AND be accessing it through an Airport Extreme Base Station.
