Power up a TV through fling with Fire TV Stick


I am building a simple fire TV app that opens a webView once setMediaSource has been flinged (with whisperplay) through a cellphone client app. The app startup works fine, but I want the app to power up the TV. The app will get the TV out of sleep mode, but if the screen is totally shut down, it won't bring it on like Youtube or Netflix does. How would one proceed in such endeavors? Are there specific intents to pass to the activity or is it at the fling service level?

**Note that the TV power up has been validated with apps like Netflix or Youtube.

Best regards,
