Form Cure power

I was keeping my Form Cure and Form Wash plugged in thinking after the display shut off it would shut down the unit. Well my Form Cure draws 0.4 watts of 120 VAC power all the time. The Form Wash draws 3.8 watts all the time. Is this normal? Normally an electronic designer will shut down all power and the user presses a button and the hardware holds the power on until finished.

My Form Wash is drawing 0.4W at idle. Form Cure, 0.5W at idle.

Those are peak readings, the numbers wobble (down) a little.

Thanks. I will check my form wash again. Maybe mine has a problem.
