Question
Does the sleep mode functionality in TL23 turn off the light source?
Summary
Essential light source stabilization time for correct readings.
Answer
No, sleep mode does not turn off the light source.  This is because repowering the lamp will result  in a 1~2hr light source stabilization time (especially on EPA version). Therefore, to avoid stabilization time, the light source is not turned off while in sleep mode.
