When we get home from work, we typically want to relax and watch TV. If you’re concerned about leaving the TV on while you go to sleep, don’t be!

Because your Fire TV device can do the same if you fall asleep while watching your favorite program! Amazon provides a sleep timer feature that will cease media streaming after a specific time passes by.

Benefits of Using Sleep Timer on Amazon Firestick or Fire TV Devices

Pausing the stream when it is not in use will help users conserve data and electricity. To preserve the quality of your sleep, you do not have to wake up to turn off the bright light from your TV.

It also makes it easier to recall where you left off while streaming so you can resume viewing later.

How to Set Up Sleep Timer on Amazon Firestick or Fire TV Devices

There are various ways to do it. Check out the methods below.

Utilize your Smart TV’s Sleep Timer Option

If your TV offers this option, you could also use it because it does not need an external streaming device to use this feature. You set the timer beyond the time you fall asleep, and the TV turns itself off while sleeping.

  • You can usually find this feature on your TV settings/preferences.
  • Locate the Sleep Timer feature.
  • Set the time you think you will sleep.
  • Even the streaming services that are on continuous play will turn off. You just have to relax, watch and wait for your TV to turn off.

Make Use of a Smart Plug

If your Fire TV and Fire Stick version does not offer a sleep timer, do not fret. There is another way to be the boss of your TV’s sleep setting. Use a smart plug and fix its settings to power off during specific periods.

This is another way to alter your device’s sleep setting. ADB Shell is software available on Android.

If these steps do not work, try contacting Amazon customer service and ask for their advice. We hope you can stream now without worrying about falling asleep.
