I have found that when my mac wakes up from sleep, sometimes there is no airplay icon. The only way I can fix this is by doing a recycle of my MacBook Air. I was wondering if there was any other way to have the airplay icon back on my MBA without having to restart it. Perhaps there is a command I can type on the Terminal. Anyone has a clue?

(FYI - Restarting the AppleTV does not solve the issue so I believe its a Mountain Lion part of things.)

  • What does "a recycle" of your Air involve? – bmike Jan 19 '14 at 20:29
  • Shutdown and restart – Regmi Feb 2 '14 at 20:09

Try cycling your MBA's Wi-Fi? I would expect powering your machine's antenna down and then back up would re-engage the Airplay internals.

  • @ Ben Mosher - Will try and let you know but but my router, dlink DIR-651 takes much more time to restart (and disconnects all other machines and devices while doing so) than my MBA so I would not really want to do it... – Regmi Aug 7 '12 at 23:54
  • Sorry, meant your MBA. Edited the answer for clarification. – Ben Mosher Aug 8 '12 at 12:59
