anyone using _sleep-proxy._udp. with AppleTvs?

I saw _sleep-proxy._udp. being denied for many appleTvs and after some googling found that it acts as a mDNS responder for devices in power save mode also sends a magic packet to wakeup the device when a service has been requested.

I did not see an option under the bonjour service filter section, so I have created a custom bonjour service.

Just wondering if any others have used this at all. Currently we are setting the AppleTVs to never sleep, but I assume this would allow us to put the AppleTVs back to sleep mode when not in use and still advertise the AppleTV services.

Cheers

I tried it out, a bit slow to wake, but did work. However, i had to throw the Ipad into airplane mode to send out a new query before the sleeping AppleTV showed up in the list.
