'The notion of an apparatus in a state of low-power readiness remakes the larger sense of sleep into simply a deferred or diminished condition of operationality and access. It supersedes an off/on logic, so that nothing is ever fundamentally "off" and there is never an actual state of rest.' [Jonathan Crary ’24/7, Late Capitalism and the End of Sleep’]
