Samsung UN65JS8500: audio on while video off

Have a Sony soundbar connected to the optical audio output of the Samsung TV. How do I configure this setup so the audio remains on when the TV video is off? At present the signal at this optical audio output goes away when the TV is turned off.

I've yet to see that.

You can dim the screen but so far I've yet to see the screen off entirely.

I apologize for the inconvenience. If you're streaming the sound from the television you would be unable to turn the screen off.
