Should you just leave the Iscan on all the time. It kinda worries me because it gets so hot. Related question - is it ok to leave other componants on 24/7? i.e. Video processor, VCR, DVD, etc? BTW - is there no power switch on the Iscan V1, or am I an idiot?

I leave mine on all the time and I don't think it is a problem. It gets warm to the touch, but this is not hot by chip standards. The thing is made out of solid state circuits, so they will not wear out from being powered normally. In fact, cooling it off and reheating when turned on creates what those of us in the chip industry call "temp cycling", which in many cases is a more detrimental condition.

I've left my iScan+ on 24/7 for 2 years now, and no problem. Doesn't get that hot, but it's in a well ventilated cupboard.

Other components, I leave them on 24/3 as I don't use the system much during the week (no time!).

I've read elsewhere that "standby" is easier on the equipment than on/off/on/off/etc......
