 Put your Mac to sleep by sending a text message

Interesting hack using a cell phone to cause your Mac to run a script.

"Do you ever go out shopping, to the pub or to the beauty clinic for your fortnightly waxing session and forget to put your Mac to sleep? I know I do, so I thought of a way to do it by sending a text message from my mobile/cell phone - well, technically we're not going to be sending a text (SMS) message, rather a multimedia (MMS) message."
