like a VCR? The VCR remains so ingrained in the psyche that it is like an ex- wife or girlfriend that will never leave your mind. I do not believe so but since there are so many new adopters, this is a question that will come up.
There are certain functions like dubbing that will temporarily inactivate the standby timer. It gives a general warning. For instance if you press record a message come up stating that standby recording is on. You have to press record again to get it to start.
My E100 staying in off/sleep mode during timed recordings threw me the first time it happened. I thought it malfunctioned or that I programmed it incorrectly when the Panny didn't turn on with the rotating display -- another VCR carryover. Only later did I read/notice that only the tiny record light turns on. Totally silent operation too!
