Why is the 1 hour sleep timer removed?
the stream TV app nor the X1 set top boxes have had a sleep timer. do you have a disability related question for this area of the forum?
There used to be an option for a 1 hour power saver, but now it’s gone. Now I have to wait 4 hours for my box to shut off
that isn't a sleep timer. however your TV is likely sleep timer enabled and you can check using your TV's remote using the TV menu. some remotes have a sleep button to access timer directly.
Understood. I’m talking about the Power Saver/ Preferences/Device settings. The default setting is 4 hours. There used to be an option to set it to 1 hour. It was taken away a about 2 years ago. After it was taken away, there was a shortcut to that screen by pressing “info” when the television powered up. Where did that option go? I don’t want my set top box to be on for an additional 4 hours after my television is off! That’s a waste of electricity.
there is no real savings of energy in going to powersave since the device is still running internally. If you put the device in power save and leave it in powersave for 24 hours a day 365 days of the year the savings would be around one dollar.
That’s good information, but what I wanna know is...... is there a way to get it back? And why was it taken away?
did you use your TV's remote and see if it has a 'sleep timer' button or menu item?
