At first glance I thought the same thing, the Eject should be over the drive, but then when I glanced at all the other 10! things in my AV cabinet and it made sense. The power button was on the left side of ALL of my 10 devices. I think that is the one industry standard that is "standard".

Thanks, I appreciate that
Since I don't read a lot of other people having this problem I wonder.....I think not a lot of people A. program there DVDR for scheduled events(more use it to backup there DVR) B. Use Weekly or Daily events. C. Only use there DVDR for a recorder, and hence power up there DVDR regularly(which clears the bug).

Agree with every thing you said(except I haven't used the ES-35, the ES-25 I have also has no bugs)
There are defiantly relatively easy workarounds for the bug(once you understand it), it's just I REALLY wish Panasonic would have corrected it on there end, so we wouldn't have to resort to workarounds.
I wonder since the rest of the world now has EZ series Panny's if there's also has this bug, or if it's just the US models that have been cursed.
