Yes, that's correct. If you tell the Harmony the device doesn't have any power buttons, then it has no choice but to hand the power control over to you.
Your problem is more than likely delay related. You might need to increase the Inter Device Delay for the PS2.
However, rather than spending more time getting frustrated with it, you might be better off phoning tech support and getting them to do the setup for you.
If you are determined to fix it yourself, I would try the following...
First, make sure under "Power settings" it is set to "Turn this device Off when not in use" and "One button for both On and Off"
1. Increase the Inter Device Delay for the PS2
2. Reduce the number of repeats for the PS2...under "Troubleshooting" and "This device doesn't receive commands correctly" then "This device responds too much to commands"
3. re-learn the power command for the PS2 using RAW...under "Custom" on the learning page.
