This is not a new item on the forum boards in fact it has been a problem for many customers for several years. It would seem that most users do not like the auto-on feature that they are forced to have on the device they own. I'm not sure why the developers can turn the auto-off feature on/off but not the auto-on feature???? This is driving me nuts and it would seem many others as well.
stop informing the engineering team and tell them to implement the feature to be able to select the auto-on feature on/off or disable it altogether. Is it that hard to just touch the power button on the speaker?
If this stupid feature has been resolved please make it clear that it has been resolved and how to fix it.
