I have noticed that the timer will stay on as long as it is plugged in (this is after the batteries have died). OF course the only problem is if the power goes out for more than a minute, you lose all settings.TWood said:I use the Intermatic timer as well. The one issue I've noticed though, is that once the original backup battery dies, the entire timer dies. This has happened several times. Anyone know of a cure?
I think the timer is great. Got mine at home depot. THe batteries for it are pretty inexpensive to replace also.
