Just curious, have any of you considered using the DPMS setting [Display Power Management Signaling, manual page 36] to turn the unit off* automatically? That way, cutting the signal to the plasma turns it off. Next time you turn the source signal on, the unit powers up. The extra benefit is you can further set DPMS to show all-white screen for a minute or more (up to an hour) every day to stop burn-in from building up.

I hadn't planned on using [DPMS white screen] because I prefer to keep certain video sources on all the time, which includes my DVI source. All the other inputs go through my A/V receiver so it going off would work fine with that mode.
I might experiment this weekend and turn off the Zenith HD-SAT520 (the DVI source) and see how I like it.
