Must Power Down When Changing Lens?

I wanted to get a clearification on something. I understand about making sure the power to the XL2 is off when changing out lenses to prevent a fuse blowing. But I was wondering, can the camera be on "standby shutdown", or do you have to fully put the camera selector to the off position?

Standby for a response ...

In keeping with Chris' themed headers, I just couldn't resist.

Yep, standby mode works just fine. 300 lens swaps with both XL1 and XL2 has been problem free after 5 years of ownership.
