Auto power off is useful when you just have a radio to turn off, but
not so much when you have other equipment. ;-) ( Unless you happen to
have a radio that can feed other devices, of course.) But APO doesn't
help when you want everything to automatically turn on again, once the
vehicle starts up later.
