Was working with oder Version!!
My 1030 shuts off after disconnecting from the charger. I recall if it was plugged into my laptop, it would go into sleep mode after it charged. I found that using a separate charger was much faster and I only use the charger now. Still, what is the problem with powering it off after a charge. Takes probably 5 seconds.
I guess we just have a different viewpoint. I don't consider my suggestion a workaround. When I'm finished using anything electronic I make sure I turn it off. When I'm finished watching television, I turn it off.
Concerning not turning off after charging, try charging with a charger and not the computer. I have three chargers and the 1030 does a complete shutdown after charging with all of them. Try it.
We are just going around in circles here and no need to continue. We just have a difference of opinion on what the default behavior is. I'll leave the discussion with a few thoughts.
When I press the on/off button for a few seconds, I have the options of lock screen, sleep and power off. I don't see how sleep is the default. Sure, if you momentarily press the button, it goes to sleep. That's just a short cut to sleep mode. It is not the default mode.There's nothing in the manual that states sleep is the default mode. I never use sleep mode because it uses battery power. If left in sleep mode for a few days, the battery could be down as far as 25%.
Perhaps the solution here is for Garmin to give us options for the short press of the on/off button. Until then, I'm going to continue to power down the 1030. I see no reason to use sleep mode.
