So I've done a little research on the built in Home Sharing on the Mac. My Previous Mac 2013, Home Sharing was a pain to connect, specially if I have the old iMac sleeping. So I kept it running. I have a new iMac now and keep it awake never sleep. It's all instant now. From what I have read recently, Media Sharing or Home Sharing the Mac should stay awake and not sleep. Is that still the right method for 2024 Sonoma?
