    I was just wondering is it safe to leave the box switched on ? by that I mean when you turn it off it goes onto standy by mode and displays the time but the top of the box gets really hot which I'm a bit wary of.
    If anyone can tell whether it is safe to do so I'd really appreciate it,thanks.

    Yes it is as safe as any electrical appliance that is left in standby.

    You can turn it off if you like or are you afraid it will not come back on :)

    your better off turning it off at night when your not using it because you are still paying for the electricity its using and its better for the environment :)

    also i heard they live longer because they get to cool down when you turn them off and they die quicker because of the constant heat.
