I had an inkling the remote power button affected only the tv, thanks for the clarification. The stick is not located behind the set, I use my through the wall hdmi cable previously installed for the tv box. Right now the stick sits on a dresser and it remains hot to the touch. As I previously mentioned That when in use, I periodically get an on screen message it is overheating.
The tv-controlling buttons work via infrared signals directly to the tv. The Roku-controlling buttons for Roku sticks work via wifi direct radio waves since a stick is usually used behind the set where lone of sight infrared can't reach it. Roku sticks do run warm to the touch. Since the stick is usually used suspended in air behind the set, perhaps sitting on a hard surface limits its air cooling.
