    hey, my PS2 has the network adaptor so when I want to reset it I have ot hold teh reset button...then it goes to 'standby mode'. When it is in this mode the lights turn off and the status button goes to red, the fan and cd also stop spinning.

    I was wondering if it is safe to leave it in this mode all of the time...as in, when I am done playing a game I will hold the reset button and it will switch to standby and I leave it like this until next time I am playing. I want to do this becuase it is really annoying having to reach nehind the PS2 to flick that power switch.

    actually i dont lol...but i found a fix for the button being all teh way under my desk, i made a switch for it ontop of my desk

    anyways, you sure it will be ok? cause since the fan stops moving im afraid of it overheating (not sure if the cpu keeps going in standby)

    When the PS2 is on stand-by it's not working, so it will not overheat
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Think about it this way, do you leave your TV on stand-by? Or your Stereo?

    no but they dont need fans to cool them, and they also dont have switches on the back of them ps2 was badly designed imo.

    My PS2 has been on standby from the day I got it I&#39;ve had it for a while cause when I got it they cost 300, I&#39;ve never had problems leaving it on standby.
    I wasn't going to buy it in the first place, so me downloading it for free isn't losing them any money.

    it shouldn&#39;t overheat because the only thing that&#39;s running in standby mode is the little red LED - the reason you shouldn&#39;t leave it on standby is because it wastes electricity

    It uses very little power on standby, however it has been proven that leaving some tv&#39;s on for long periods of time can cause fire, this may or may not be the same for Ps2&#39;s
