I have a 50" sammy. the 1080i one not the p. Unlike my old crt it doesn't have a physical power button, just a standby one instead. I used to turn it off at the manual plug every night to save power usage but with my new tv you can't do this unless you either turn it off at the plug or unplug the power lead. How much power will it use in standby? Is it blown out of all proportion by the green fingered evangelists? Also I have a set of those remote controlled sockets. I have lights etc linked up to them to turn on and off via the remote. I was going to use one of those for my tv but I heard that its not recommended with more complex electrical goods. Is this true and would it do any damage to my plasma if I used one with it? thanks in advance!
