Never booting back to front row would be great, but I would miss the native Netflix app that exists on front row. If someone could figure out how to launch the native netflix app from XBMC, than that last issue would be solved.

Thanks Tomcool. Might use this in the future!

ah if only you could sleep the device from within xbmc and still be able to fallback to front row for airplay stuff.

Ah yes, sleep from within XBMC would be great to have now

i used a little workaround for sleep:
- set xbmc to shutdown after 10 minutes of idle-time (falls back to frontrow)
- set frontrow to sleep after 15 minutes of idle-time
this way, you will have sleeping apple tv 2 after 25 minutes.
for me, i now leave my apple tv 2 up and running all the time, as the energy-usage is quite low.

There are 2 problems with that workaround:
- My atv2 seems to reset the sleeptimer to 'Never' after a random period of time...
- When you install the tomcool.xbmc-booter, xmbc quits, and will be automatically restarted

I was under the impression that XBMC resets the sleep timer to 'Never' at boot, but once it successfully closes it returns to the previous setting. The problem being that if XBMC crashes or does not shut down cleanly the setting is left at "Never"

You guys make things possible, which never ever gonna happen. Are there any explanations how you did this miracle?

Seems a plausible explanation. I had a few crashes due to too heavy loads when testing skins.
Is it possible to disable this behavior? So XBMC doesn't touch the sleep-setting?

I believe there was a problem with the sleep function interrupting the functionality of xbmc, which is why it gets disabled now on starting xbmc.
