The Power button is not a Power button as you might think, it is an Off Activity button, meaning it will turn off devices used in the last Activity not set to be Always On. If you are trying to control one device in Device mode pressing the Off will do nothing, it will only work in Activities as an Off button. When you press the Off button the Activities screen will be shown so that you can select and start an Activity. By the way, have you setup Activities?

thx for your answer rhachey
I'm sad if i can't use this button for turn on/off devices!
But I don't real understand... ACTIVITIES is only a IR macro?
So i was tryingto do one with my TV ( Switch ON => input HDMI2=>Ambilight On)
This activities work fine. but, if i push POWER button of remote, Tv stay power on.
It's very strange , there is no ON/OFF button on this remote ? (By the way, i can use REC button or Screen button)
So... can you explain, remap key is the only solution for switch on/off device like I want?

Like I said before if you are in Device mode, pressing the Off button will have no effect, You need to setup Activities, such as Watch TV, you create the Activity adding the devices you want to control in the Activity such as your TV, Cable box, AV Receiver, then when you select the Watch TV Activity, your TV will turn on and be set to the correct input for your cable box, your Amplifier will turn on and also be set to the correct input, and your Cable box will turn on, you will then be able to change the channels for your cable box and if it is also a DVR the Transport buttons for the cable box will be mapped such as Fast Forward, Rewind, Play, Pause., and the volume control will be mapped for your AVR. This will all be done by the press of one button. When your are done with your viewing session press the Off button will turn off all of those devices not set to be Always On.

I don't think that you understand that you have to set up the activities to use the remote. If you do it is the easiest remote to use. You do not use the devices button to operate the remote.
