I’m just setting up a 52 inch Sony TV. After putting it on its stand, I loaded the remote with batteries, hit the remote’s standby switch, and nothing happened. That’s fine, all I had to do was find the hard power switch. From experience I know that at least half the time I can’t find these, so I consulted the manual.
No problems, there it was. But it reminded me that in these green times, they aren’t called hard power switches or anything like that. Now Sony calls it an ‘Energy Saving Switch’.
