Question regarding the B777

    Many switches in the real aircraft are kept in an On/Auto position. Only systems generally considered harmful such as hydraulic pumps or systems consuming a lot of power or are not designed to run on idle (fuel pumps) are usually switched off before shutting down the aircraft and these switches should also be off in the cold and dark configuration.

    If you know any switches that should be off as part of the standard operating checklist and flow for the aircraft please let us know.

    In fact, it would be interesting for the plane to start with power, in this case I mean with screens only on, I talked to a real pilot and he told me that most of the time the plane has the screens on
