This ingenious idea puts that to bed and takes pity on the lazy amongst us by automatically putting your computer to sleep when you leave it's vicinity.

Pairing your phone to your computer via bluetooth allows your computer to be put sleep, or turned off, when you leave for the evening. It then awakes upon your return the next day.
