I don't have an Apple tv but was thinking of getting one do you leave it on all the time? The pictures of the remote on Apple's website don't have a power button. Personally this sounds great, I already have a roku(like an Apple tv) and it just stays on, never need to turn it off just has a screen saver.

The Apple TV seems to put itself into sleep mode when its not in use or when you change to a different source on your TV remote.

It has a screensaver for when you have it selected as source but it's inactive. And yeah, no power button on the ATV remote.

So you can just leave it plugged in and the Apple tv takes care of the rest?

You can wait for it to automatically go into sleep mode or you can select "sleep now" from the menu.

I installed a simple lamp-cord switch on mine. I was having trouble with it freezing to start but that problem has cleared itself.
