    Is there a way for me to stream my iTunes content from my Mac to my Apple TV while the Mac is in Sleep Mode.

    I apologise if there is already a thread like this.

    1. FOLLOW the rules. Don't bump threads.
    2. It isn't possible. Use InsomniaX to keep your Mac from falling asleep when you're not using it.

    um...

    Can't you just NOT let it fall asleep? Have monitor turn off, computer idle.

    When your Mac is asleep, it's mostly off. There's just enough electricity being used to keep the contents of the memory (RAM) intact. If it wasn't for that, it would just be off.

    Go to System Preferences/Energy Saver and set 'Put your computer to sleep' to Never. Set 'Put the display to sleep' to whatever suits you.

    If you have external hard drives, you can check the box to sleep those devices. They will cause a brief delay if data from them is requested while they are sleeping, but it shouldn't cause any problems.
