Remotely sleeping your Mac!

A great tip submitted by Omer Dolev: Sleeping your Mac from an Apple Remote! If you have a newer Mac that includes the Front Row Apple Remote, you can put your Mac to sleep from your remote. You just have to hold down the "Play/Pause" button for three seconds. It is very similar to sleeping an iPod! Thanks Omer for the tip!

And, as a bonus, you can piss off the guy at Starbucks who forgot to pair his Apple Remote to his MacBook.

There is a link in the "Links" section in the sidebar with the email address. The Link section is not present if you come through the widget to the individual tip page. You can have access to the main page by clicking "A New Mac Tip Every Day" at the top. The email address is tips4mac at mac dot com
