Re: sleep mode

Sleep mode only disables wireless, so it does not make much difference anyway.

Re: sleep mode

Unless it feels excessively hot this is normal.

Re: sleep mode

So to be connected all the time is ok, is that going to cost more electric?

Re: sleep mode

Leaving the homehub on 24/7 apparently costs less than £10 per year and unless you previously turned it off at the wall it has always been on. The sleep mode only turns off the wireless on the router.
