It is a new feature on the controller, the pioneer manual says:

Disabling the auto standby function
● When the auto standby function is set to on, if 4 hours have passed while the following conditions are all met, the unit automatically enters standby status.
— No buttons or controls, etc. except for the [MIC] control on the unit are operated.
— No audio signals of -18 dB or greater are input to this unit’s input terminals.
● When the [CENSOR (WAKE UP)] button is pressed, the standby status is canceled
● By default, the auto standby function is enabled.

Press the [AUTO LOOP] button of the left deck.
● [AUTO LOOP] button lit: Auto standby function is enabled
● [AUTO LOOP] button off: Auto standby function is disabled

No idea I have SR2 however you can tweak those settings or even disable them in utility mode. The online manual more pages than the reg manual but you can even tweak xfade cut, jogwheel colors and other settings in utility mode.

Can you tell me if when you enter untility mode, only the peak light blinks on the controller?

Also in utility mode pressing the auto loop button does not cause it to light up, can you cehck this and let me know.

What exactly are you wanting to do with the controller? When it's in utility mode nothing blinks. Press shift + play, pause button while powering on will engage utility mode.

I've only had mine for 24 hours but so far there's been no issue with the wake up feature. My controller goes to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity. If I move a knob, slider, or press a button then it will come out of demo mode
how does yours behave?

Same for me unless he has a defective unit or something. When the controller isn't active it will go into demo mode but as soon as I touch it it comes back to life.

I have to ask....if it'll be left for 4+ hours, why not just shut it down altogether?
Logisticalstyles 1:16 PM - 5 November, 2017
That may be a typo in the manual. Mine goes to Demo mode after 10 minutes of inactivity.

There is a difference between demo and wake up. Demo is when the unit works and when you pass a button it comes out of the stage where all the knowbs light up.

It wake up mode it is working. The controller is sleeping and when you press knobs it doesn't respond.
