    Standby mode
    "This washing machine, in compliance with new energy saving
    regulations, is fitted with an automatic standby system
    which is enabled after about 30 minutes if no activity is
    detected. Press the ON-OFF button briefly and wait for the
    machine to start up again."

    My old M/C I swithed off at the wall, so consumed nothing.

    My question is does the new M/C still use electric in automatic standby mode?

    Standby always uses a little amount. Some standby modes aren't very good though, I think standby on SVS subs are 14W which isn't exactly nil. More modern equipment are about are around 2W. But if you have dozens of things all using 2W that soon adds up.

    I'd just switch it off at the main isolator.

    If you have the instruction booklet it should tell you the power consumption in SBM

    Failing that contact the manufacturer

    Problem being you may lose all your settings & have to re-enter them every time you switch the appliance back on.

    Thankfully TVs & AV stuff usually don't but my cooker timer does. We have plenty of blips in the power supply around here & is a weekly chore resetting timers & clocks.
