    If i set a SSH server on my iMac and it is on sleep mode, and i try to connect to it, will it wake it up? or ill have to find a way to wake it up remotely?

    Many have reported problems trying to access a sleeping Mac remotely. You can use Caffeine, which will temporarily override your energy saver settings and keep your Mac awake with a click on the Menu Bar icon. Another click turns it off.

    It's called "wake for network access" or "wake on demand" there are a few apple support threads about using it.

    Other option is to wake it by mac address but if you're on another network that may not be a choice.
