Suggestion box on/off timers

Would be nice to have a power option to set a power on time and a power off time. So for example, set the cable box to turn on at 6am for the of us who wake up early in the morning not wanting to fumble looking for a remote.

The cable box does not turn off, it is either on or in sleep mode.

@Rustyben​ I understand that there is no true 'off' , but it would be nice to come out of sleep and turn on my tv at a certain time and/Or program it to go to sleep at a certain time.

you  could do that with a smart outlet plug like linksys. then ask google to turn it on at 6:30 am. as box boots up, it will be on the last channel watched. lots of downsides to that.
