Question: Apple TV sleep

Is there a keyboard shortcut to put the Apple TV to sleep? I'm using a 3rd party Bluetooth keyboard.

Use Bluetooth keyboards with your Apple TV - Apple Support

The ‘TV/Home’ button on the remote is used to go to the Home screen. Holding that button pressed for a second or two, should bring up a sleep dialog box.

I think the keyboard equivalent is F4. Try holding that key down.

About the F4. Might be the "key repeat" feature. I see that in settings on my iMac. Which you can turn off when paired to your Mac. But that's when paired with a Mac. I have not paired it to my Apple TV. Maybe there is a setting to turn off key repeat? If not, maybe Apple could consider making one.
