Chromecast turns on / off itself

Hi.
Bought Chromecast 3 a few days ago and plugged into the TV USB and HDMI port. Now here's the story: When I finish watching a movie, I turn off the TV. 5 or 6 minutes later, Chromecast is also turned off.
Then 4 or 5 hours later Chromecast turns on itself. What does it all mean?

Hi JPaulo,

It sounds like the Chromecast is being underpowered, you should use the Google supplied power adapter as TV USB ports can be unstable.
