Eco Mode aka Sleep Mode and Shutoff Support Mode

The Baby Lock Destiny 2 has what they call Eco Mode.  To anyone who has a computer, this is also known as Sleep Mode.  So Eco Mode is a Sewing Machine Sleep Mode.  The Eco Mode has to be set or the machine will just stay on indefinitely, but overall it's a good function to have.  Activating the Eco Mode allows you to save power if you leave your machine running an embroidery design.  It finishes but you're working on a different project.  Rather than just staying on indefinitely, after the specified time, the machine goes in to Eco or sleep mode.

To set the Eco and Shutoff Support modes, click the settings button on your machine

The box at the top is where you set your Eco mode and shutoff support mode. Eco Mode can be set from 10 minutes to 120 minutes and you will know the machine is still on because the start/stop button will blink greenly at you.  Press this button and presto!  The machine comes fully awake and is ready for use.

Press the start/stop button when the machine is in Eco mode, and it will “wake up” and be ready to sew.

Shutoff Support Mode can be set for 1 to 12 hours. Now the Shutoff Support Mode is a heavy duty version of the sleep mode.  Eco mode is a cat nap.  Shutoff Support Mode is like Snow White.  The only way to start her back up is to kill her entirely, then turn her back on.  Hmmm...that maybe isn't the best analogy.  You will again know the machine is sleeping by the slow green blink of the start/stop button.  But when you push the button, you will get a message telling you to turn the machine off and on again.

If you press the start/stop button and your machine does this, it was quiet for too long and has shut itself down. Now, if you try to get ahead of the shutoff support mode message and turn the machine off while this load bar is filling up, when you turn it on, you will still get the following message.
