Iphone 4 And Apple TV

I was re-arranging a few things on my iphone this morning, prior to hospital visit tommorow. I have had the phone and an Ipad for quite a while, but only recently aquired the Apple TV. Now this is where it gets a bit strange:

I selected a particular song on my iphone, and was presented with the choice of either playing it on the phone (default) or the Apple TV. Being a teccie sort of chap I selected the Apple TV (which at the time was off, as was the TV and the 7.1 surround sound system to which it's attached.

Without doing anything, the Apple TV unit woke up, and the track was played to it. So my iphone is actually able to stream to the TV unit and bring it out of sleep.

Tried it with my ipad2, but no such option. I'd better downnload the manul for the TV unit....Seems it does have a purpose!
