The Sleep Feature
If you want to turn your TV off automatically after a certain period of time, you would want to make use of the Sleep Feature. You can opt to turn your TV off after a number of minutes with the help of the GE Universal remote control. Here are the steps to follow:
1. Locate the sleep button. Press and hold it until the indicator light appears.
2. Enter the time from 1 to 99 minutes. You would have to enter 0 before the number. For example, if you choose 20 minutes, you would have to key in 020.
For the sleep function to work, the remote must be kept aimed at the TV.
If you would like to disable the sleep function, press and hold the Sleep button until the indicator light starts blinking. Alternatively, you can press the Power button on your remote control to turn the power off.
At the time of writing, the GE Universal remote is priced at USD 14.99 and is available from this site.
