About Power Mode Switch of CloudStation (CS-WX, CS-WV series only)

Created 11/21/2011 01:33  |   Updated 03/08/2012 08:12
The "Power Mode" switch on the back of the unit has three positions:


  • Auto positioin
    The Auto position automatically powers the unit on or off with your PC. If your PC is turned on the CloudStation will power up; if the PC is turned off the CloudStation will power down.
    You must have installed the NAS Navigator software (available in each website of each region http://www.buffalotech.com/select-your-region) on your PC for this feature to work.
  • Otherwise, if you move the switch to Auto, your unit will power down by itself and you will have to manually turn it back on.

  • On position (middle)
    Move the switch to the On (middle) position to have the CloudStor turn on and stay on.

  • Off position
    To turn off the CloudStation, move the switch to the Off position. It will take several minutes to fully shut down. 
  • Do not unplug the unit until shutdown is complete and the power LED is no longer lit.
