Companion 5 auto standby
As I understand it, if no audio activity on both the USB and the analog input for some time, the unit will go into standby/sleep mode (red light on pod). But what happens when audio starts again?
I was somewhat dismayed to read that in this case it starts up in muted mode, so you have to press/touch the pod to enable audio again. Quite frankly this is such a hideously stupid idea I wonder if in fact that is not true. An external audio system for a PC needs to be able to understand whether the computer is active or asleep/off and automatically switch between ON for the former, but go to standby for the latter. An external audio system should require no more manual control than any internal speaker - just provide the better sound quality.
So, can anyone confirm, is it possible to have the Companion 5 auto switch between standby and fully active?
