      Switch it off, and unplug the phone line from it as well as the power supply. That way it won't get zapped if there is a storm

      To go off topic for a sec, don't do what I once did when going away. I throught I would switch off the main switch for the house, I forgot about the freezer!! and we returned home to a chest full of mush!! (and one upset wife)
