I am using the Shield mostly for watching TV, SLing TV, Tablo, Netflix, and YouTube. MY controller stays on all the time and the battery dies everyday and I have to plug it in again, My XBOX controller will turn off if you don't use it for a set amount of time, is there anyway to set this on the controller? or a way to turn it off without turning off the box?

This is from the online user guide:

How to Turn Off SHIELD controller

The controller automatically turns off when you turn off the SHIELD device the controller is connected to. The controller also automatically turns off after 10 minutes of idle time. The controller stays on during video and music playback on the SHIELD device. This allows the controller to be active to control media playback.

NoteNOTE The battery level can be checked in the SHIELD accessories app.

I think you can also turn off the controller by holding down the power button for 5 secs but not 100%

Edit- I meant the power button on the controller itself
