    hi all,
    I am designing a permanent installation where a person (other people's to the system) goes has to on/off it. Somebody knows some device to on/off a Macintosh G5 from distant (10 meters for example).
    best

      Passive Infrared would do it -- like a security motion detector. Check some of the sensor threads. To get ideas about how to get this data into your computer, etc. How you proceed depends a lot on your interest in hardware hacking.

      PS maybe this is a starting point?
