Re: How do I turn off PS3 slim?

Because old  or heavily used electronics on standby is a fire hazard.

And it draws NO power at all compared to standbys small power drain.

Even in college they stress this in their basic electricity lessons (if thats whats its called).

I'm not sure how a PS3 slim could be considered old or heavily used electronics. I think you would have a stronger point if you were talking about older houses with suspect wiring and appliances, or storing oily rags near sources of heat and spark. Plus, you put wear on the internal backup battery used to keep track of the time and other functions in the PS3. It might be troublesome to take the unit apart and replace that battery down the line, unless you expect to buy a new unit by then.

I've just been taught that electronics should be turned off completely before bed, especially TVs, once they get older they might catch fire.

IMO they should at least have given you the option, right?

If you want your stuff on standby, that's fine. But forcing us to use standby is what i don't like.

Yeah, I read the older PS3's used as much as a refrigerator when in use or maybe in standby? Either way they consumed a lot of power even when in standby. I was surprised when I picked up my new PS3 slim this month that it didn't have a power switch. I agree that the should of included this but glad to hear it doesn't consume much on standby.

attach the slim to a surge protector and use the switch on that to turn off from stand by mode.
