I read on this forum that some models automatically power themselves off completely (no current drain to clock, etc) if the battery gets too low. Does this mean if it's setting on a shelf for a few weeks, it will completely power off at some point to protect the battery? If so, is this feature offered on the XL-335TM?

Thanks, can't find this info anywhere. :confused:

For those models with a reset hole, depressing the reset with the unit off apparently truly turns it off.

Those models without a reset hole apparently require holding the power button beyond the normal reboot time till you get to the diagnostic screen. Then, supposedly, when you tap the power button to turn the unit off, it really is powered down.

That's my understanding, anyway.

A way to prove this is the case is to try it, when you next switch it on after trying the above if the device starts with a drum roll then it was fully off, no drum roll and it was only in standby - Mike
