Depending on whether the Kilburn is running on battery or mains power it uses two different standby modes. This is in order to comply to the European Union regulation that states that electronic devices may only have 0.5w power consumption in standby mode (This European Directive on energy related products, or ERP)
The Kilburn active stereo loudspeaker will go into standby mode after 20 minutes of not receiving a sound signal or after thee minutes of not locating any bluetooth device when in pairing mode. Depending on whether the Kilburn is running on battery power or is connected to mains power, the wake up behaviour differs.
Waking up - Battery Power
When the Kilburn goes into Standby Mode while running on battery power, the loudspeaker enters a low-power state, it will not automatically wake up when you begin playing music and it will also not show up as an available device in your Bluetooth Connection list.
To activate the Kilburn after the unit has gone to Standby Mode, push the Source/Wake button once. This will bring the Kilburn back to life and ready to play again.
Waking up - Mains Power
When connected to mains power, the Kilburn will automatically wake up when the last used source is played or the source/wake button is pushed
1. If the last source used was the 3.5mm stereo plug input, the loudspeaker wakes up automatically when the connected source begins to play
2. If the bluetooth device was used as the last source, using the last used Bluetooth device will wake the Kilburn up
NOTES: If you want to play another Bluetooth device instead of the last one used, push the Source/Wake button once to find paired devices.
