When I set my sleep timer the TV turns off and goes to standby. Surely if you just cut the hdmi signal the TV will remain on, with it's backlight on, sucking up power?

What model TV have you got?

Oh, I see what you're saying, an actual timer that says turn off in 30 minutes or whatever. My timer is when it received no signal for 10 minutes or whatever you set it for, it powers off. I'll have to see if there's an actual timer like you said.

I never enabled it in the first place. Just viewing it as a list of all the directories containing my movies/TV shows.

RE: Raspbmc quirks
Im pretty sure there will be it's usually standard.

I kinda thought you had misunderstood me but wasn't sure. My way of looking at it is the Pi can stay powered up for days, months and it costs nothing, the TV being on (rather than being on standby, which is what a sleep timer should do) will cost alot, plus if it's 'on' even a black screen wont be as black as a turned off screen...

Yeah, I don't really care about power consumption of the Pi, just the life of my TV.

I have this problem as well.

Something I have been thinking about (I don't know anything about programing, I'm only on step 2 of code academy for python).....Would being able to download the cover art to the pi's sd card speed this up? I normally use the iOS xbmc remote app (iPhone) and just started using the andriod xbmc remote app (tablet). I noticed that with the andriod tablet app you can select to download all the cover art to the tablets micro sd card. Is this something that helps speed things up to help fix this problem?

RE: Raspbmc quirks
I left cover art disabled since I don't really need it and I figured it would slow things down. To me it's just a big list of my movies.

I think my SD card got corrupted as my RPi won't boot anymore, nothing but a red light, so I'm waiting on a couple more to get delivered, as well as a new power supply just to try it out. I tried it with a Blackberry charger that put out 700 mA and it was the same, have a couple 2 amp adapters on the way to test those out.
