I did a search thru the HDMI-CEC specs and not once did I find any mention that it had a command to turn of the TV.

My fire TV never seems to go to sleep in general, the light is always on and it's frustrating I've tried what I could considering I'm not rooted due to the new upgrade. I wish I would have rooted it back when I bought it but I never got around to it.

Sorry for digging up such an old post but I have the same problem and would like to know if somebody fixed it.

I'm using a Fujitsu PC monitor and a FireTV Stick to stream some Netflix before going to bed. Turning off my PC immediately triggers the monitors standby because the signal is gone, but sending the FTV to sleep seems to keep the HDMI active, so the monitor just shows a black screen, but stays active.

Is there any way to turn off the HDMI completely?

You can switch off all CEC devices via broadcast or a single device via address (address 0 is for TV).


CEC 13.3 System Standby
CEC 13.3.1 Messages
The following message is used for the System Standby feature:
CEC 13.3.2 Feature Description
The broadcast message <Standby> can be used to switch all CEC devices to standby.
A device can switch another single device into standby by sending the message <Standby> as a directly
addressed message to it.
