    Hi there, I was wondering if it is possible to turn my samsung HDTV to go to standby/sleep mode when my Mini sleeps. Normally when the Mini sleeps, the HDTV will just show "No Signal" notification floating around the screen.

    Is there any way to make my HDTV behaves like a monitor? I would prefer to keep my HDTV turned on all the time so whenever I press a random key, I am ready to use my Mac. Thank you in advance!

    When your mini goes to sleep it stops transmitting a signal to the monitor until you wake it up. Leaving your TV on all the time will effectively reduce its life by pretty high percent anyways. Turn it off.
