I am not in front of the tv but the last bottom selection of the right hand menu force the Apple TV to sleep should you want to do that.

I love the ATV. Especially AirPlay music from iTune to my home theatre zone 1 and 2 and remotely controlling from the iPhone or iPad, AirPlay for videos, mirroring the iPad. There is more but these are the feature I use most. My photos also show up as screensaver.

You are correct, apparently I never noticed the sleep now selection in the menu, thanks for pointing that out.

FYI, I have both a Apple TV2 and ROKU XS. Both units are really nice with the differences being minimal. The ROKU is basically a jailbroken Apple TV in that you have access to a lot of content that Apple restricts. The advantage of the Apple TV is Air Play and direct access to your iTunes library. The ROKU "can" access your iTunes but it requires additional free software. Air Play is still only available via Apple TV. In my opinion, you will be happy with either device and which one to choose is a "Honda VS Toyota - Ford VS Chevy" type debate.

Well ~ I almost got the ROKU, but I did my research on the ATV and the additional cable was only $7 ~ and for $8 bucks a month we can stream unlimited TV series and movies from Netflix. How cool is that I ask you? Main reason I wanted this. Plus that, it was time I got my second Apple Toy. :)

Yay!! So glad you are finally getting it!!

I haven't even opened the box yet!

And won't know what to do until I do, I may be the one needing help! Maybe AddiosAmigo will have to help the both of us! ;)

In Brisbane we're 18 hours ahead of you. It's almost 1.15 am Monday the 26th here. Christmas has come and gone for us! It was a lovely day but now I'm pooped.

Hope you have a wonderful day! Good Night!

Merry Christmas To All!!
