    I'm one for going to bed watching the TV and falling asleep after 10 minutes.

    Just got a 17" Relysis LCD which has sleep timer but only when watching the tuner i.e. Channels 1 to 5. For some strange reason if you're watching an AV feed it's inoperable.

    I've used Timer Switches before but it's a pain to set it each night.

    I've doen soem searching and found a Pneumatic time dealy light switch where you push the switch in and it slowly releases until, after 20 mins, the switch turns off. Anybody know if they have one for plug sockets?

    If not, anybody any other ideas.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I wouldnt imagine so, but who knows nowdays :)


    One thing tho, is that such a good idea just cutting the power? I lost an old crt portable due to a power cut so I'd be wary of that.

    One for All remotes have a sleep timer function on them (even the cheap ones). Basicly, once set, you leave the remote in a place where it can still operate the monitor/tv and it sends the 'off' signal at a pre-determined time.
