    I have the ATV4 set to never sleep due to the fact that I need it to stay on for HomeKit reasons. However I noticed that turning the tv off put the ATV to sleep too. So I turned off the HDMI control.

    However I'm still finding that the ATV will often be off for no apparent reason and I can't find anything else that could be causing it.

    Any ideas or is it a bug?

    How frustrating :mad:

    I set mine to not auto-sleep, and it doesn't. I didn't have to durn of HDMI control though, and my ATV4 stays on when the TV is turned off. Sounds like yours might be in need of repair or replacement :(

    home kit still works with it asleep

    do you honestly think they would make a feature that lets you access something from outside your home, but then automatically goes to sleep and stops working when you leave home?
