    I've got the most recent version of the Apple TV, and lately I've been having some kind of issue where the Apple TV wakes up on its own. This also causes the TV (a Sony Bravia) to turn on as well.

    Is anyone else having this problem?

    I'm seeing a lot of this on other forums as well. All random with a variety of TVs.

    Wow, looking on Apple Discussion Forum I'm seeing a lot of ppl with this issue. I've personally never experienced it but I did manage to duplicate the issue as per one of the posters on that thread.

    One possible issue here is AirPlay. ATV will wake up when someone evokes AirPlay on an iOS device or Mac, and ATV 4 will turn on everything else.
    This is an old problem; people used to complain that the light on ATV would shine for no reason. The difference now is that ATV 4 can use HDMI-CEC to turn on TVs and receivers.

    I had this happen the first night after I plugged in the ATV 4. I turned it off, came back to the empty den an hour later, and everything was blazing. Turns out my wife had been using her iPad to AirPlay upstairs on the old ATV.

    I tested it, and sure enough, invoking AirPlay will turn on the ATV 4, which turns on everything else; I think it will respond even if you arent trying to AirPlay to the ATV 4 itself, but to some other device.

    The only solution, regrettably, is to disable ATV 4s ability to turn on the other equipment. Look in Settings and turn off HDMI-CEC. My empty den has been quiet ever since.
