What's the meaning of the Standby Symbol »
This page is about the meaning, origin and characteristic of the symbol, emblem, seal, sign, logo or flag: Standby Symbol.
IEC 5009, the standby symbol (line partially within a broken circle), indicates a sleep mode or low power state. The switch does not fully disconnect the device from its power supply. This may appear on a toggle switch opposite a power on symbol, alone on a pushbutton that places the device into a standby state, or alone on a button that switches between on and standby. Alternatively, under IEEE 1621, this symbol simply means "power".
