    *Should iTunes prevent the host Mac going into sleep mode when syncing?*

    Lengthy syncs between iTunes and my Apple TV are interrupted by my Mac going to sleep. When I wake the laptop, unsurprisingly the sync has stopped.

    Am I right in thinking that iTunes usually keeps the computer awake as long as the sync is in progress? If so, what could have gone wrong? As an interim measure I have set the laptop remain awake when connected to power, but this is not ideal.

    If it helps the great minds of the forum, here's my setup:

    * MacBook Pro 15" unibody connected via WIFI
    * Airport Extreme N router
    * USB HD shared via Air Disk
    * TV connected to Airport via ethernet

    All software is fully updated across all devices.

    I don't have any helpful solutions, but mine does it too periodically...
