So in the last week or so I've notice whenever I use AirPlay it will disconnect when the iOS device auto locks. It never used to do this before. It's annoying when you trying to watch something and have to each keep touching the screen or turn off auto lock. Anyone else experience this? Is there a way to turn it off? Thanks!

I have had this problem couple of times. Restarting iOS device resolved it for me.

This happens to me all of the time on my iPhone 5 running iOS 8.3 and with v3 of the Apple TV (new hardware a few weeks ago). I think it depends upon the app, since in the past on my previous Apple TV I've seen situations where it does not disconnect. In any case, it's very annoying and to avoid this problem I have to turn auto-lock to NEVER.
