Anyone with any experience of Apple TVs? (I mean the little boxes that let you connect up your ipad to a TV / computer screen)

I work for a school that's got lots of them.  We're trying to implement an energy-saving strategy that involves turning power off to sockets in sections of the building overnight and at weekends... (because it's not realistic to turn off devices individually) but we're being told that this will cause problems because the Apple TVs have to stay on 24/7.  Is this a load of rubbish, or is there a genuine reason why they have to stay on? Will they lose their settings if turned off?

Thank you

That's rubbish.  Been using our for about 4 years and it gets switched off regularly with no ill effects whatsoever.
If they are v2 ones (i.e. black hockey puck type and older than 12 months) look after then as, although they cost about 70 each new, they sell for about 200 now as they're the only ones that can be jailbroken to run additional software  - such as XBMC.  Makes them much more desireable.
