Traveling and trying to connect to my iMac OS X Sierra.  Screen is asleep (of course).  TV reports "TV not running on partner computer".  I called my wife to wiggle the mouse.  She did so and then I can connect (TV was running all along).

Apparently when screen is asleep TV "looks" not running.

I don't remember this ever happening before OS X Sierra.  Anyone else?

Remote control is very important to me (and I hate calling my wife at 3am :)
