    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.

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