The Baby Lock Destiny 2 has what they call Eco Mode. To anyone who has a computer, this is also known as Sleep Mode. So Eco Mode is a Sewing Machine Sleep Mode. The Eco Mode has to be set or the machine will just stay on indefinitely, but overall it’s a good function to have. Activating the Eco Mode allows you to save power if you leave your machine running an embroidery design. It finishes but you’re working on a different project. Rather than just staying on indefinitely, after the specified time, the machine goes in to Eco or sleep mode.
Eco Mode can be set from 10 minutes to 120 minutes and you will know the machine is still on because the start/stop button will blink greenly at you. Press this button and presto! The machine comes fully awake and is ready for use.
Now the Shutoff Support Mode is a heavy duty version of the sleep mode. Eco mode is a cat nap. Shutoff Support Mode is like Snow White. The only way to start her back up is to kill her entirely, then turn her back on. Hmmm…that maybe isn’t the best analogy. You will again know the machine is sleeping by the slow green blink of the start/stop button. But when you push the button, you will get a message telling you to turn the machine off and on again.
Shutoff Support Mode can be set for 1 to 12 hours. Both Eco Mode and Shutoff Support Modes are located on settings screen number 5 under General Settings. To see the functions in action, watch my YouTube clip on this very topic.
And that is how the sleep mode on your Baby Lock Destiny 2 works. Oops! I mean Eco Mode and Shutoff Support Mode.
