My elderley mother has just come out of hospital and watching her Samsung TV from her bed. I've got a feeling she must fall asleep with the TV still on. Just wondering if I could easily set it to switch off automatically at midnight. Thanks

    simple plug in time switch , at midnight it will trip the tv off , set to come back on at daytime she will have to press "on" on the remote to turn it on




    unless there is a sleep setting in the menu , there is on my tv , but you set it for how much longer you want the tv on rather than time

    Google the model number and 'instruction manual' - most TVs have an schedule for these things, but the process will likely be slightly different for each model.

    Most TVs have a sleep timer, but they switch the TV off after a set number of hours use. I'm not aware of any which switch off at a particular time each day.

    I agree a timer switch might be the best idea...

    My 2015 Samsung has the option in system settings, as well as the more regular sleep options.

    Both of my LG TVs (2014 models) also have the option to set a schedule. That's why I've suggested the OP reads the manual.

    Any half modern TV will have what you need, but they call it energy saving - look in that, or the power menu - there's very likely a setting that will cause it to switch off after 'x' hours of not pressing any buttons on the remote.
