Put your Mac to sleep from afar…

As a trainer and presenter, I often set my Macbook Air up in classrooms and conference venues. When I go to lunch or another break, I often wonder whether I remembered to lock my Macbook Air.

This post today from MacSparky (@MacSparky on App.net and Twitter) provides a wonderful little automation that uses Drafts on iOS, Dropbox and Hazel on the Macbook Air.

So I can now be sitting at lunch, and type a command into Drafts, and as long as my Macbook is online, it will go to sleep a few seconds later.

A great automation tip from MacSparky!
