I've installed team viewer on my iPad and my mac min. Brilliant app, but it won't wake up my mac mini, if it's asleep, so not much good if I'm away from it, which is the whole object of having the app. I am sure there must be a setting somewhere. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas?
Long shot really I know, but you never know!

I just searched for it in the ap store. If you want it for a mac or PC it's just www.teamviewer.com. Great application actually. I'm really impressed, especially of I can get it to wake up my computer remotely.

You cannot let your Mac go to sleep. TeamViewer won't wake it up. I believe it's a bug.

Check the "wake for network access" setting in the Energy Saver preferences of your Mac Mini.

It doesn't work, at least not for me and several dozen others who have reported it on the TeamViewer forums.

I've given up on teamviewer. It just didn't work, and even on the odd time I did get connected, it was so complicated with finger clicks, double finger clicks etc. I gave up and installed PocketCloud instead, which is absolutely BRILLIANT!!!! Simplest thing in the world to set up, has a brilliant keypad and mouse option, and just works every time. I can't believe it's a fee app. If you want remote access I couldn't rate it highly enough.
