the sounddock® 10 bluetooth® digital music system goes into two different standby modes. the first is a charging standby ready mode. this is the mode it enters when you first plug in ac power. it charges your ipod®/iphone® and remains ready to play. the second is low power standby. it will not enter this mode with an ipod®/iphone® in the dock. when in low power standby, the standby indicator glows on the front panel.
note: only units produced after september 2012 have the power indicator.
