The default on the tv is to sleep after 1 hour. So if you didn't turn it off, it will turn itself off after 1 hour. You can change that setting in General > Sleep after > ... The smallest setting is 15 min, 30 min, 1 hour, and up...
Hope this helps.
Edit: Hold the center select button down for 5 seconds and It'll go off.

Currently Being ModeratedDec 12, 2010 6:10 AM (in response to captfred)I too was looking for a way to put the AppleTV (2nd gen) to 'sleep' with the remote. However, pressing and holding the center (round) button in the remote does not accomplish this with iOS 4.1.
Is there any other way to put the AppleTV to sleep with the remote? Thanks!Mac Mini PowerPC + Mac Mini 2.0GHz Intel / MacBook Pro Intel / AppleTV (2G), Mac OS X (10.6.5)

You must be at the "top" of the menu (i.e., not be in any sub-menu) for pressing/holding the center button to work.2.66GHz 17" MBP 2.0GHz 3GB G5/533MHz 384MB G4 DeskTop/400MHz 384MB G4 Ti PB, Mac OS X (10.6.4), 60GB 5G iPod, 4GB iPhone, Nikon D-70, Nikon CoolPix 990, Sony HDR-HC3

p.s. Some might wonder why you would want to turn it off an AppleTV, rather than let it sleep on its own. My reason is simple: My audio receiver only has one optical input. So I have a great optical/TOSlink splitter ($6 from parts-express.com) that allows two TOSlink/optical outputs to feed one optical input (the stereo receiver). So in order to switch between my satellite TV receiver and the AppleTV, the other unit must be off, otherwise the receiver can't produce any sound.Mac Mini PowerPC | Mac Mini 2.0GHz Intel | MacBook Pro Intel | AppleTV (2G), Mac OS X (10.6.5)
