Default Sky 'auto standby' to roll out from today

Yes, but a lot of people probably keep them running during the day

You mean some people just turn the TV off (sorry put it in standby) and
forget about the digibox?
So it's of no benefit to those of us who already put the box in standby
whenever we stop watching?
Why make such a big thing of this when the problem is the fact that even in
standby some power is still consummed? The Goverment has asked the industry
to look and minimisng the power thats' required in standby, not just
introducing Auto Standby.
