Q Media - Q. Why is my Q Media soundbar/soundbase entering standby?
This method of operation is related to the legal requirements for us to minimise the power consumption during standby. A pause of over 20 minutes causes the product to enter standby, and to get it to reactivate, you do need to use the remote or press the central button on the unit. To save doing this there is another way, switch the TV off and on, which depending upon the TV and type of connection, should awaken the soundbar from standby.
