It sounds like your mini accepts your tv-remotes on/off signal.
If you don't need to control your mini with a remote, then just turn off the IR receiver (in system preferences, security).
If you do need to control it with a remote, then use an apple remote, and pair it with the mini.

Under energy saver in the system pref you can customize the computer sleep and display sleep

If you're not using the HDMI control feature with other devices, your TV should have a setting to disable that.

If you are using a Harmony remote, just make sure that "ALL OFF" doesn't sleep the mini.
