So, I'm assuming, it auto switches off when the drain is below? what? 20watts?
AIUI some devices use up to 10watts in standby, this will detect the reduced drain and shut down?

How long does it leave between detecting the standbys before switching off?

I'm assuming each plug is independent otherwise it could shut down dvd player while I'm watching tv etc.

Have you tested it on mobile phones yet? ie if i have my two mobiles on it, once both are charged does it automatically shut down?

I use it with my LCD TV and kit, I plug the TV in the master plug and then dvd player & sky box into the other sockets. If I turn my TV off or put 'on standby' and it cuts the power to all the devices a second or two later. It's great

Ah so the master socket controls all, not independent.

So if standby no longer exists on everything, how do you switch everything back on?

i have pc as main powersource and printer,modem,router and speakers as slave units as soon as i shutdown my pc everything else turns off (saving me loads per year on elecccy)
