1. Once you've paired the 360 remote with your TV then the white round TV button allows you to switch off your TV independently of the 360 set top box. To turn the TV back on just press that button again.
Also, if the 360 is turned off, if you click the red power button it should turn on the 360 (and also the TV providing you've enabled one power in the 360 settings)
2. On the 360 remote press Home > Settings > System > Standby timer
You can change this to either 4,5,6 or 24 hours.
It's also worth looking at Home > Settings > System > Standby power consumption
You have 3 choices.
Fast start - the 360 starts quickly but is less energy efficient
Active start - more energy efficient than fast start but the box takes a little longer to start up
Eco start - the most energy efficient and probably the one you're using. It uses minimal power but takes a while to start.
The first two options are best if you have a mini box and want to watch a recording on it
If you've lost the 360 remote control you can (allegedly find it by) pressing and holding the +(plus) button on the front of the 360 box for about 10 seconds or until you hear the remote start to beep to audibly locate the remote.
That method doesn't work for me, however holding the - (minus) button on the front of the 360 works for me
