Put Mac to Sleep

Put your mac to sleep


Put your Mac to sleep remotely.

Requires only that your iOS / iPadOS device and Mac are on the same network.


In the dictionary in the shortcut, set the following:

  1. To set hostname, use IP address of Mac if it is a fixed address (see Settings> Networks) or go to Settings > Sharing on your Mac MacBook-Pro.local in the example below if you use DHCP.

  2. You must also set the username you use to login to the Mac with. If you don’t know what that is, go to terminal and look at the prompt. It usually will before the "%".

  3. Set the password of the Mac you want to login to.

If you don’t configure these things, the shortcut can’t login to your Mac.
