From Gauges, select "Exit", then select "Setup". Now select "Power". Select the Auto Power Off time that you want to use, and select "Ok". The auto-off watches for a lack of OBD2 communication (indicating the the
vehicle must have turned off). This prevents the DashDAQ from shutting off while the engine is running.

If you select a time longer than about 1 minute, the DashDAQ may loose the signal. That means that if you decide to restart the truck you would have to reboot the DashDAQ. I recommend using sleep mode so you won't have to worry about the DashDAQ having to go through the complete boot up process every time you get back in the truck.

I guess sleep mode is when you push the little black button before shutting the vehicle down? That's what I've been doing... And I wonder how hard that is on the batteries. I have drained batteries in past vehicles by leaving a so much as phone charger plugged in all the time, so I wonder how much voltage the dashdaq is pulling with the screen off and the brain on.

With two batteries, your not going to see any issues....unless you leave your truck sitting for days and days without cranking, or you have a weak or dead cell in one or both batteries.
