40D Question

I hesitate to ask such a "basic" question, but hopefully the group here won't mind (no flaming please - I'm trying to learn). First a bit of background. I've recently upgraded from the Rebel/XT to the 40D, and trying to get up to speed on some of the operating features which are different than the XT. Due to "work issues" I haven't had much spare time to learn the 40D yet, but I'm working on it.

Although I've read the manual numerous times, I'm still a bit unclear on the differences between the two settings of the "On / Off" switch. There appears to be little difference between the "On" setting and the " " setting? The rear control dial seems to work in both positions?

Can anyone shed some light on the reason for the two-positions of the switch?

Thanks for your help!
