At the moment when my Mac Mini goes to sleep, none of the ATVs can see the shared iTunes files. Just wondering what settings I need to configure in Energy Saver so that it doesn't do this?

Thanks.

You need to enable wake on demand in the energy saver control panel AND you need a device that does Bonjour Sleep Proxy service. I'll google it for you:

Thanks Steve. That's what was confusing me though, wake-on-demand has been enabled already and I'm using all Apple hardware on the network. THis was all working under Lion so I'm trying to figure out why its stopped....

Maybe the same reason why my iMac now goes to sleep even when its downloading which it never used to under Lion :mad: :confused:

I see that Mountain Lion messed up my sleep settings on my iMac. Apple TVs and LogMeIn does not work if my iMac goes to sleep. So for now I have just disabled sleep.

No joy, sometimes it won't wake at all from sleep even when using the mouse and keyboard so I just need to power the thing off.
