How do I turn off my Apple TV?

    With a little more research, i can now shut down Apple TV by going to settings on Apple TV, scroll down to "Sleep Now" and activate. The unit then shuts down. To wake up Apple TV, click Menu twice to go to Home screen. This is the way the designers intended to turn the unit on and off.

    Or, just hold down the center button while on the Home Screen.

    Interesting and really helpful! I just discovered the newest AppleTV was causing my Free To Air digital TV signal to cut out when it came back to live (the AppleTV). I was panicking a bit over the last couple of days wondering why the TV signal was disappearing ... with the Olympics coverage coming up.

     

    Now when I put the AppleTV to sleep the TV signal comes back.

     

    The AppleTV has its own HDMI port connection ... not sure how it coming to life causes the Digital TV signal to crap out.

    This is great; AppelTV 3 has no volume control and no 'off/on' command, I guess we just have to scrap all other equipment than Appel.
