    hey,

    i am new to the forums, I got a short question.

    I got the newest MBP 13" and I am thinking of getting the 3Gs iphone.

    Say, I got my MBP attached to external speakers, the lid is closed and the MBP is sleeping. Now my question: will it be possible to come home, press a button on the iphone and make my mac play some music from itunes I selected on the iphone?

    If the MBP supports WOL try using Remote Boot. It's a WOL packet sender.

    I was looking into LogMeIn Ignition today, because it is on sale for $20.
    However, it seems like the waking issue has to do with Wake-on-LAN, and that is not always supported. The main feature that I would want from LogMeIn is turning on & off my computer from my iPhone.
