The good thing about the Revo and the Asrock 330 is the clearly
marked power switches. This makes it pretty easy to power these
things off when you are not using them. So if you are worried about
a fan running all night in your bedroom, you can just shut it off.
One of my pet peeves about the AppleTV was it's lack of a power
switch. Shutting it down completely is not very straightforward.
