Can someone confirm that this is possible? Time Machine backup to a network drive while system in sleep mode? Has anyone ever done this and confirm?

Just wanted to share that the Power Nap feature successfully completed a Time Machine backup on a network drive via Airport Extreme.

My next concern is will I be able to access a superdrive/blue ray burner attached to the Airport Extreme?

Access the burner for what exactly? Do you have some auto backup to BR disc or something?

Lol, just for watching movies or accessing games I guess. In case you forgot, rMBP's do not have a built-in Superdrive, and I don't feel like connecting a drive via USB while I'm around the house.
