A lot of people are using this time to stage the next garment, or possibly answer the phone or wait on a customer. With the Auto Open feature you can multi-task or leave the press without worrying about ruining the garment. Not for everyone, but definitely has proven to be a useful feature for high volume & low volume users alike.
