    using droid as a computer remote?

    I was wondering if there was an app in existance that would let me use my phone to sleep my imac. I lose the remote every once in a while and its so annoying until I find it.

    Im on a droid2, and an imac purchased in 2008. It has a remote that works.

    I understand this is kind of far fetched lol.

    Theres an app called RemoteDroid.. You install the program on your computer and connect your phone to it. The touch screen acts as a track pad.. might not be exactly what you're looking for but its pretty cool!

    I think the program is written in java so it should work on macs and stuff..

    RemoteDroid Use your Android phone as a wireless keyboard and mouse to remote control your computer
