    Just noticed this yesterday...All generations of the ATV have had this since day one. The unit would power on randomly every 15 mins. or so and then power down. No answer was ever forthcoming either here, or from Apple. The update on Monday has fixed it, and the units now remain asleep as they should.

    Yes, this has been a huge relief. I switched the ATV3 from WiFi to Ethernet and everything is fine. This one was in the room next to Airport Extreme so WiFi speeds were not an issue. On the other two TV's in the house I put off replacing the ATV2's with ATV3's because of this issue. I think it should be safe to replace them now.
