How does the “standby” or “sleep” mode function on the Chief Steamer 125?

The machine will enter “standby” or “sleep” mode after 40 minutes of non-use, shutting off to save electricity. If the green light is solid with long blinks and the red light is off, the machine is in standby mode. To exit this mode, press the steam trigger switch or turn the power switch off and then on again.
