My Android Tablet. (TechPad 7" Tablet from Chinavasion, S3C6410 Android 1.6;) has an option to dim the screen after 2-10 minutes of inactivity. However, there is no option to put it into a "standby" mode, and a full reboot takes 20-30 seconds.

Any ideas how to really put it into a standby / hibernate mode?

So does pressing the power button turn it off completely? – gary Oct 23 '10 at 0:41

Android does not support a standby or hibernate mode.
