Default Nexus 4 Chromecast issue

I got my Chromecast today, while watching some videos using my Nexus 4 Android 4.3 to Chromecast . I experienced lock up's, after the screen timeout. I can't get into the lock screen. So I have to reboot again..by long pressing the power button of my phone. The streamed content is still working while doing the reboot.

Exclamation N4 Blackout Issue

I'm having the same issue. I'm on a bone stock N4 running Android 4.3 from the factory image.

However, it is an interesting development that the Chromecast continues to run even when our device is off... I'm betting that soon we'll see a crack to running the full Chrome OS on the Chromecast.

Why is that an interesting developlment? That is how its designed... you arent 'sharing' content from your device to the chromecast. The CC is pulling the content directly from the network itself.

No where did they ever say that the Chromecast could run without another device once it started... So since it was never announced or talked about, that DOES make it an interesting development... !

I believe it was mentioned in the demo. Once a stream was started from Google Music, YouTube or Netfix the phone/tablet is no longer needed. They mentioned that we would see no battery drain as well. This is because the phone/tablet is not doing the steaming. Essentially your phone is just a remote. Just like a TV ... You find the channel you want and the remote is no longer needed.

I too am experiencing the lock up when the phone is put to sleep during streaming. I think it is related to the lock screen. If you push the power button once and wait a while you see the new lock screen that shows up during streams.
