    Hi guys, if I turn conference room mode off, my devices can no longer wake up my apple tv from sleep via airplay. With it on, I get the annoying conference room display on top of my screensaver. Certainly the latter is the lesser of two evils, but is there a way to allow my devices to wake up my apple tv without having conference room mode on? Home sharing is enabled.

    it should work, I do it all the time.

    try rebooting the aTV after turning conference mode off.
    if that doesn't work, try rebooting your main router
    and if that doesn't work, try resetting the aTV.

    it's a little hit and miss. Should it? yes...

    I think the ability to "wake up" an Apple TV sometimes depends on the particular the device and OS... As AFEPPL mentions, it's really hit-and-miss.

    I've done TONS of Airplay testing for my app, and *still* don't understand why one ATV will remain in the picker list while another may not... :(

    As waw74 suggested try restarting the AppleTV (hold menu + down until the LED on the ATV flashes rapidly).

    I wake up my ATV with other airplay request (iOS and OS X) quite frequently.
