    Hi all,

    My iridium just landed - first impressions are great but still have a lot of fiddling to do. Is it safe to leave it powered-up but in bypass and without a guitar connected to it, while it's sitting beside my computer? Only asking because there's no power switch, and the end of the instrument cable still barks when I touch it...

    If I have to power it down by removing the 9v plug, I just *know* that cable's gonna fall down the back of the desk into no-man's land...

    Thanks,

    Al

    I've left my Iridium on for 6 hours at a stretch a couple of times. It's fine.

    *Clip or tape the wire to the back edge of the desk.

    Thanks!

    <sheepishly unplugs mine after approx 24hrs>

    Cable now tied to the instrument lead.
