I just want the screen to be black when I am not casting anything.

Google needs to address this. We love Chromecast and want to leave our TVs on so that we can use Google Assistant to control YouTube TV but we don’t want to see pictures on the TV in ambient mode. A dark screen with a subtle Chromecast logo would work but not a bright screen.

I agree this thing is in serious need of a low power mode. The point of it being a set and forget back of your display device is totally destroyed when you're like me and it makes you feel like crap leaving the little thing back there running super hot all day even when the TV is off because it's just sitting there pumping out high res HDMI images into nowhere. I unplug it every time I'm not using it and it's a huge hassle.
