    Can we get a sleep timer, please?


    Just recently separated from my wife and moved in with my dad. Cable box has been having issues recently, so I started using my xbox with the Spectrum TV app. This app completely ignores the one hour of inactivity auto shut down. Yes, I do have a sleep timer on my TV, which I use as I'm trying to fall asleep. The problem is, when I wake up 8 hours later, my Xbox is still running. Now, if it is a weekend, sometimes I like to get up and immediately start gaming. But as someone that grew up with the original Nintendo, I know the problems associated with leaving a console on for too long, so I have to get up and turn off the xbox for 3 or 4 hours before I feel comfortable going on a 4-6 hour gaming binge.

    Please, please, please, please!

    Can we get a sleep timer added to the "Shut down / Restart console" screen when you hold down the Home button?

    Sleep Timer on Xbox One?

    Ok, well idk what happened but all of a sudden the "Power Off" button is back.

    As far as the "sleep timer". Can we just get a real one that we can set a timer and it shuts off regardless?

    Many people like to watch stuff as they fall asleep and don't want to rely on the "INACTIVITY" timer to do it because it's unreliable. If an app is still open, the Xbox will not count that as inactivity. Such as Netflix, it may stop playing after 3-4 shows
    with no interaction, but the app will stay open.

    Feature request...

    Thanks for the feature request, I'll let the team know. Xbox has a sleep timer, but we consider watching TV to be active, so it won't go to sleep while Live TV is on.

    ^Not to mention even the OP stated that the Xbox sees the TV as an open running app and won't shut down automatically. "Just using that" won't work.
