[br]I used a switch for the sleep function. The mute function is hard wired to the Fault pin on the Tripath chip so that if the amp overheats or you have a short circuit the amp will mute. After the amp cools down or the short circuit is removed the amp will unmute.
On my first Amp6 I place the power switch on the back of the amp and put the sleep switch on the front (sort of like some computer power supplies).
On my second amp I placed both on the front.
I truthfully can't see a reason to use the sleep switch though as it does nothing for the turn on pop and serves little purpose.
