Does your Apple TV turn on alone in the middle of the night? You are not alone

I thought I was going crazy.

Every night, before going to bed, my routine is to “put the Apple TV to sleep. Turn off the TV and turn off the sound bar. ” Goodnight. But in the middle of the night, when I woke up, I saw a steady and vigilant light coming from Apple TV. "I would swear I had turned it off“I thought. Paranormal phenomena continued. When I arrived from work there were days when my Apple TV was waiting for me on.

And that's not all. The problem began to spread to my television, which sometimes also turned on by itself, for no apparent reason. That's when I started to suspect: was only my Apple TV turning on? And indeed that is what happens, as we can see in the official Apple forums. The Fourth generation Apple TV has a bug that makes it turn on alone, even though we put her to sleep. A problem that in some cases also extends to the TVs to which it is connected via HDMI-CEC.

Everything indicates that it is due to a software problem and that it would be easy to solve with an operating system update. However, in the latest beta of tvOS for developers, published this week, it is not found no sign of solution to this bug. If Apple is not aware of this bug, I think all the comments made in its official forums will have helped.

An unfortunate bug, especially if it also affects our televisions, since our electric bills will be affected. All a domino effect.
