Most modern-day Smart TVs comprise a new feature called Automatic Sleep Mode. This mode makes your Smart TV sleep when it finds any inactivity for a certain time. You can also set the Sleep Timer on Roku TV to turn off the TV automatically. Likewise, there is another option known as Fast TV Start. This feature wakes up your TV if it hears any voice commands. The Fast TV Start feature is compatible only with the Roku TV version 8.0 and above.
With the Fast TV Start feature, you can listen to music, live radio, podcasts, and other audio notes without turning on your TV screen.
