How can I get my Sony STR-DH520 to shut off my subwoofer when powering down?

Eith you need a 12v cutoff both on your sub and on your receiver, or an auto setting on your sub. That said, theres no harm done leaving it on all the time. Its not really using any energy when nothing is being played through it.

My system: Yamaha RX-A3060, Emotiva XPA-2, Salk Song3, Salk Songcenter RT, Polk FXiA6, Rythmik FV15HP, Intel i7 HTPC running JRiver Media Center

You can also pick up one of the various power strips that switch off outlets slaved to the master outlet. Amazon lists a number of them, and I am sure Parts Express and other vendors carry them. APC also makes some of their Back-Ups UPS units that have switched outlets (look for their "green" units).
