    I wonder if it's possible to send IR signals from a macbook, so i can use it as an apple remote.

    If it's possible, how do i make it?
    And can i send applescripts via IR so i can prank my friends in school and put their macs into sleep, start music, change the volume, open websites for examples?

    I know that i can prank them with applescript via ssh, but it's not working on the schools wifi. So IR would be a perfect thing to hack with!

    And if it's not possible to run applescripts through IR, can i still use the mac with the same functions as the apple remote has? Like change the volume and put the computer into sleep?
