Any harm to come from leaving your plasma on stand-by for a few hours?

I think a lot of people just leave it in standby mode when not using it. I try to remember to turn the power off before I leave the house, but otherwise, mine's usually in standby.

Thanks, D


That's what I thought, but wasn't sure.

I think the idea was to always leave it in standby since 1 watt of power wont tax anything and its much less of a chore for the plasma than when you turn it on from completely off position.My DVD player does same thing with no option to put it in off position except pulling plug.

If any of this is wrong thinking on my part I would love to hear different ideas on this.Ive had my pioneer plasma in standby for 2 months and everything is fine.

It's probably better to leave it in standby (less wear on the switch), but I've got the 'turn everything off before leaving or going to bed' mentality and it's an impossible habit to break.
