TV box get very hot

I have a mini comcast TV box in our bedroom. I noticed that it never turns off and it is always very hot. Is this normal? Even when I am not watching TV, it is hot to the touch. Not to mention the bright green light on it is annoying when trying to sleep. Is there any way to turn this thing off?

Re: TV box get very hot, I also have the same problem.

I have the compact box on an open shelf.  The cable box heats up the shelf above it and it feels very hon on the shelf where the cable box is.  The only way I can cool it off is by unplugging it when Im not using it.  Not fun, and not what we would expect these days with all the tech knowledge.
