Patrick and everyone else:
I'm sorry but I did misinform you and I stand corrected.  While it is true 
when the auto-on is used and the pump beeps and sirens that there is no 
change in basal rates as I wrote; it IS true that once the siren alarm goes 
off the pump does HALT and SUSPEND delivery of insulin.
Thanks for pointing this out Patrick - I have checked my manual and you are 
100% correct!

On the Animas Web Site's Virtual Pump
(http://www.animascorp.com/vp/pr_virtual_p.shtml) it says "Auto off is a
feature that causes the pump to alarm and suspend delivery of insulin if you
do not press a button within a set period of time."
