    Hello Krzysztof,

    Bluesound Players are designed to turn on instantly and play music with a touch of the Bluesound controller app, once you walk into a room. While it idles and waits to receive a command, the Ecosystem will consume very little power, like other network components such as a switch or router, and continue to stay connected with other Players in your house.

    For more details on the power consumption of our Players, please see the specifications for each player at www.bluesound.com

    We will let our Engineering Team know about your request to turn off the player with a double press of the mute button.

    How do you turn the player off, and if you haven't thought about it why not. This is an example of the worst design you can imagine.
    Scenario, you have a pet lets say for example a cat. The cat decided at 3am to do what cats do best, sit on top of the warm object. This just hapends to be the one without an off buton or control, say a Bluesound Pulse. The machine goes of pause, (the only function available on the player) and the volume goes to maximum in a matter of seconds. Result the house is vibrating people fall out of bed, baby that has taken two hours to settle is screaming, and your wife askes why the expensive device you have installed in the bedroom, has woken everyone again. Also who designed an object of that price without the facility to be turned off... No clever response about "we want you to be able to play music without waiting!" trust me it does not work. It is a major design floor! It now prevents me from buying the other three Blue sound products, no matter how good the sound quality. Another point, without the facility to turn off, the blue glowing light on top does keep people awake in a bedroom!

    But with the Bluesound Node, it will often be consuming full power because the user forgets to stop the music streaming. Please consider these suggestions

    Unfortunately, I always have to pull the power cable and the LAN cable on all devices to rest.
