Shut off is not an option if the device's power cord is still plugged in. You'll have to unplug the power cord if you want it "off"

I usually put mine to sleep, and when I switch to another input channel (to use the BD player for example), I assume it's still asleep. Other than that, I can't tell if it's still asleep or not, since there's no light indicator on the device itself.

I understand when I switch back to the Firestick input, the home screen should show up right away. I selected the Firestick input, thus, it should "awake" from sleep mode.

Yeah, figured. I guess ok. Just don’t want to burn it out or something. I guess it’s fine. When I hit inputs on my tv it shows all inputs that are active and that input called Firestick, almost always shows as active...

Yeah I messed with that before and nothing happened ,however I didn't know if you shut it off then it might work.

I will try it next time I watch a laserdisc or DVD-R.

Thanks.
