    Hello guys, i bought an ATV2 and put it in my living room. I ever use it to watch movies by the iMac iTunes library. The problem is that i can not power off my iMac if someone is watching ATV2 or the movie would be interrupted.
    What can i do to solve this and let me sleep and someone else watches movies?

    That really depends on what about the iMac keeps you up. If it is the light from the screen I would suggest turning the display off. For this I have set up an Exposé Screen Corner to Put Display to Sleep. Now if the iMac's noise keeps you up I don't see much else but to move it to a different room

    or even just set the display to go off after 10 minutes or something.

    Sure that i can do as you told me; but does the aTV capable to read elsewhere the iTunes library like from an usb drive attached to the Airport Extreme?

    No, it can only read off of an iTunes library hosted on a computer.
