    im really confused by this. why would you pay ~$30 for this app when there are free alternatives out there?

    The answer to that is obvious...the one you pay $30 for is more functional, apparently. If the free ones were just as good, the paid one would go away.

    Having said that, I would buy Logmein Ignition, but it appears to be unable to wake the computer from sleep? That would be a problem for me. Or...does LogMeIn Ignition wake a Mac that's running Snow Leopard with wake on demand enabled?

    apparently haha. would you care to list some of the main features of logmein? i use a number of different VNC apps that work fine for me, i guess logmein has some extras that are worth the investment?

    so does the free ones, and its free :D

    nothing crappy about VNC. i would much rather VNC then the wierd protocol that logmein uses. seems to be more optimised.

    Because as an IT professional I already use the services from LogMeIn for all the workstations I support.

    It tunnels through firewalls without needing to do port forwarding. Some of the other options also do this.
    The paid services LogMeIn offers are great for someone managing a lot of machines. The additional monthly cost to the LogMeIn Free service to get the system managing is not marketed for personal use.

    There are options out there and some more suitable for personal use, its a matter of convenience and/or existing use and willingness to pay. Some people prefer the 'built-in' screensharing/access protocols like:
    - VNC (option for Linux, built in option for OSX, Windows with separate install)
    - ARD (built in Apple Remote Desktop aka ScreenSharing)
    - RDP (built in Remote Desktop Protocol for Windows)
