    Every since I connected my 4th gen Airport Extreme, the audio receiver that's connected to my TV and surround sound randomly comes on in the middle of the night - over and over!
    The Airport Extreme is located next to the TV and receiver because that's the only active internet location. I also have an Airport Express nearby that's connected to the surround sound to allow for Airplay. Please help. :mad:

    Try disconnecting the Airport Express from the amp to unplugging it for an evening.

    I have a feeling that the Airport Express is sending a signal to the amp, if it is there may be a setting to the amp to stop this happening.

    My ATV2 switches itself on and off 24x7, I have a feeling its happening when my Macbook Pro is waking up to do a backup or the fact that I have wake for network access set in the Power Saving options for syncing my iPad & iPhone.

    From looking at the manual, the 589 is never switched off its in standby mode.

    From page 34 :-

    Turning the Power On

    1 Press <POWER>.
    The power indicator lights red and the power is set to the standby mode.

    2 Press <ON/STANDBY> or [ON/SOURCE].
    The power indicator flashes green and the power turns on.

    * Also press [SOURCE SELECT] when in standby mode, the power turns on.
    In this case the input source is selected by remote control unit.

    * Also press [QUICK SELECT] when in standby mode, the power turns on.
    In this case Quick Select is selected by remote control unit (page 41).

    So I do wonder if its the Airport Express.

    Dang!

    O.K. First, y'all are awesome for trying to help. I disconnected the Airport Express last night, but the receiver still came on. I'm going to relocate the Extreme, but that requires contacting my cable/internet company. I'll update y'all once I get this done. Thanks for your help.
