external monitor going to sleep

I picked up a CB last week to connect to the TV in my bedroom to watch TV shows that I can't get on Hulu. I've got it connected through the HDMI connection and it works wonderfully (I'm typing on it now). The problem I'm encountering is that when i turn the power off to the TV, the CB goes to sleep and when I want to use it again, I have to open the lid to the CB to wake it up. I've tried a few of the extensions that keep the display turned on (using Caffeine right now) and it works just fine as long as the TV is turned on, but when I turn it off, the CB goes to sleep.

Has anyone discovered a fix for this problem? Or do I just have to get up and open the lid to the CB to wake it up every time I turn my TV on? /first world problems
