Do you have the player set to power off automatically? I do, and I think it's always done so. I have a couple of SACD's on the Linn Records label that make the player do strange things - the player will stop playing and I have to hit Play again. Also I've left it playing overnight and IIRC the player shut off, but my receiver (which is also supposed to power off after 30 minutes of no use) was still on. Very strange. No such problem with any other discs.
