    Does it really come out of sleep, or is it just the light that's coming on?

    On my stock aTV2, from time to time, the white light will pop on. I have confirmed that the aTV is still asleep by switching the inputs on the TV.

    I think the light pops on only when I'm messing with the TVs inputs and something gets sent down the HDMI inputs.

    I second that, my ATV3 sleep lights comes on whenever I switch inputs on my receiver or sometimes randomly. I've switched it to the input when it has happened, but it doesnt display any video, so it must just be the led on and not the actual unit. No idea why it does it, but it doesn't seem to bother me anymore.

    My light comes on unrelated to switching input bevause ive been keeping it on the same input as the atv since its in the master bedroom. I was thinking it was coming out if sleep but actually it just might be the light coming on. Since it faces the bed i'll just put some tape over it.
