Since I upgraded to iTunes 11, it crashes every time my MacBook Air wakes up. It's caused by Airplay which can't reconnect to the external speaker.

 

When I open my computer, iTunes says "Connecting to [speaker name]" but it never connects. Tapping the Stop button doesn't work, and I can't change speakers or even switch back to the computer. I have to force quit iTunes before I can use it.

 

Upgrading to iTunes 11.0.1 (12) didn't help. I'm using OSX 10.8.2 and all software is up to date. Any ideas?

 

Please don't tell me to disconnect the Airplay speakers before closing my MacBook Air. I've always left it connected and never had any problems before.


MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    i have a very similar problem with an iMac that needs to connect to an apple tv for a remote connection with iTunes.  connection is readily made after force quit and relaunching iTunes.

    I have the exact same problem.  It happens when my late 2012 iMac wakes up and attempts to connect to any of my airplay speakers or AppleTV.  This never happened on my old 2008 iMac but that computer was set to never sleep.  My current one is set to sleep at night and then wake up at 6AM.  I'll try changing the power settings to never sleep.  Although I'd really like a better solution if anyone has one.

    I have the exact same problem, where upon looking at my MacBook Air every morning, iTunes says "Connecting to [speaker name]" but it never connects.

     

    This never happened with previous software versions.

     

    I will set my computer to never sleep for now, but hopefully this will be fixed in a future update.
