Can I set the screen to turn on/off automatically?

We have experimented with turning monitors on and off over HDMI, but we found that a number of monitors did not wake up properly when we used this method.

As a quick-and-dirty workaround, we suggest that you simply use a regular electronic timer to connect to the TV display directly. However, do make sure that the Raspberry Pi is powered on 24/7.
