Sometimes I watch videos on youtube within safari and then airplay them to my apple tv. If i locked the iPad, it carried on streaming.

All of a sudden today, when the iPad locks, airplay stops. This is really annoying, any way to fix this? I have no idea why it would even start happening.

Hello - I would first try some quick & simple maneuvers: 1) Follow the steps below in sequence to see if one might correct your problem; and 2) Power recycle the Apple TV (i.e. pull the power & plug it back in) - please post back your results. Good luck - :)


When an app (or several) are misbehaving, I usually go through the following steps:

1. Force Close - open the multi-tasking bar (double tap the 'home buttom' or use multi-gesturing and swipe up); press & hold an app until all begin to 'jiggle'; find the offending app(s) and press the 'red circle w/ minus sign' - return to the home screen & try again.

2. Restart - press & hold the 'Sleep/Awake' (a.k.a. power) button until a red slider appears (may take a few seconds) - move the slider to turn off the iPad; then press & hold the same button until the Apple logo appears - wait for a restart.

3. Reset - press & hold the 'Power' and 'Home' buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears - this may take a longer time, so have patience; the iPad will 're-boot' - NOTE that none of these maneuvers will alter your apps, files, or settings.
