Xantrex Prosine Inverter, Power Save Mode?

I have a 1800 watt 230v Xantrex Prosine Inverter, its about 5 years old now and still working fine. Except: whenever I turn it on it now says "Power Save Mode Off" instead of "Power Save Mode On" as it used to. I haven't changed anything that I know of.

There is an obvious difference in that it now draws about 2 amps with no load on it, as opposed to it drawing a minimal amount (0.2 amps or something) before when it had power save mode enabled.

Does anyone know how to switch the damn thing back to power save mode on?

Usually that function is in Setup.

I have a Magnum 2812 and that's where they put it.

As you power it up, when it shows 'power save off', immediately turn it off, then back on. It'll now come up with 'power save on'. Power save off is a default mode, you toggle it off/on by doing the above, or you've disconnected from the house batteries at some point and lost the setting.

At least, that's how it works on mine.
