If you're in the UK (like me) then the problem may be a recent change
that Sky made that also confused me. They seem to have updated the stb
firmware that they occaisonaly send out, and included a "turn to standby
if not used for two hours' setting. Try checking the setup menu. I've
now disabled mine and it's stopped doing it.
