Sony Walkman NWZ series standby mode question

Is it possible to disable standby mode so that when I power off the mp3 player, it turns COMPLETELY off?

Mine takes a half a second to turn on after its been turned off so I've wondered about this also. Is it realy off? How could it load so quickly?
To shut it - I press and hold the Option button and get a confirmation that flashes on the screen saying it is now closed. And it apears to be off.
But when I press the option button again to start it it takes less than a second to be up and running.
Certainly don't have any qualms about that but it forces me to question is it realy off?

Walkmans POWEROFF dont actually power-off them rather makes them stand-by* as they say on their website which i found on a FAQ section in Sony India support portal.
