You use more power listening to the receiver for 3 hours than running in standby for a year. Also, cutting power disables the wake on lan function, being able to start via AirPlay or using the tablet app.. Anytime I have restored power (after cutting it at the surge suppressor) none of my devices turn on, they just go back into standby mode.
I leave everything on standby & use a Harmony remote to turn on (from standby) the devices in the order I want
Thanks Paul! Yes, I am cutting power off to the receiver when I cut power off to the TV (not for saving pennies on the electricity saved but more as a caution in case the surge protector fails). Haven't fully played with the unit and wasn't aware of the functions you listed. Great! Thanks again.

It can be powered on automatically, however, if you have HDMI control turned on and an attached HDMI device that supports HDMI control turned on. Typically, this means your BD player. Other devices may not support HDMI control at all.
Thanks Foxbat! Receiver should stay off when power is restored? Wasn't aware of that. If that's the case, maybe I got it wrong that the AVR power came on when I turned on the TV for the first two days.
follow up query on your reference to a HDMI device that supports HDMI control turn on: wouldn't my TV qualify as such a device since the HDMI cable goes from the AVR out to the TV's in? I gotta double-check but I do remember turning on the HDMI control on when I set up the receiver. Please let me know.

As far as turning back on, the AVR is designed to probably not to turn on after power is restored. You must manually turn it on using the remote or button on the unit.
Just imagine if your house lost power and then the racket you would have if everything turned back on when the power was restored.
Thanks man! Yes, all power to other units is cut when I switch off the TV; I made that observation to show that there wasn't any issue with the AVR power chord and rule out the possibily that I didn't
plug it in the surge protector to which the TV is plugged in.
Foxbat's confirmed what your line of thought: unit is designed to be off even when power is restored.
