This sounds like the same sleep mode that the hard-drive based Zen-series players like the ZVM had. For these players, sleep mode actually saved a bit of battery power, since it took so much power to spin up the hard drive and completely reload the operating system each time it was turned on, that the amount of power used by sleep mode was minor in comparison.

This doesn't exactly explain why this feature was present in Flash-based players, however. But seeing as how this is a solid-state device, I really can't see how sleep mode makes all that much of a difference in battery life. Therefore, there is no discernible advantage to removing sleep mode from these players -- in theory, anyway.
