    Can you leave Apple TV on all the time, or do you have to turn it off so it doesn't get hot or ends up not functioning over time? I plan to buy the new Apple TV (which will be my first ever), and wanted to know if I can keep it powered on all the time like my TV and cable box...

    Yes, you can leave the :apple:TV on all the time and no it won't get hot because there is no hard drive.

    I leave my gen 1 on all the time, and it runs about a zillion times hotter than the new model.

    You'll have no problems.
