I just got a Mac Mini to use as an HTPC. I'm going to be running Plex and have the Mini hooked up to my HDTV. I do not have a mouse or keyboard connected to the mini and control it via Screen Sharing from my MB or Snatch Remote on iPhone. However, I can't determine the best course of action to take regarding sleeping the mac. My options: I have no problem shutting down the mac via Snatch Remote. But shutting down isn't the problem. I can easily set a schedule to shut down and wake up the Mini when not going to be in use. However, throughout the day I want it to be on, but if it is set to sleep it is going to be difficult to wake it up. Can I use the Apple Remote to wake it up? Another thing is I was thinking of streaming music from the Mac to my work computer, which would obviously require it to be awake. Is it bad to have the computer not sleep all day and then shut it down every couple of days? Thanks for any advice, or tips on using a Mac Mini as a HTPC.
