I fell asleep while watching an episode of a TV show and woke up to find Infuse still playing, about 8 episodes later.

It would be nice to have an (optional!) prompt during continuous play to allow the device/tv to sleep if the viewer is no longer watching. Maybe every 3 episodes or so, similar to Netflix or the Kodi addon 'Next Up Notifications'.

Thanks!

Depends on how it's implemented I guess, but I don't think that's quite what I want.

I'm looking for something I can toggle on that, while the app is autoplaying, checks for user presence every couple of episodes. If the user does not respond, then the app stops playing, and the apple TV can automatically sleep itself.

What I don't want is something that triggers after 2 hours, or at 2am, or something explicitly time-based. That's awkward and inflexible (maybe I'm not tired in 2 hours, do I need to reset it? will it warn me before it shuts off? etc.)

That's also a useful feature to have, it just doesn't scratch my itch.
