I suspect most modern SS amps utilise a similar soft switch system to the one in your computer. Get it looked at and expect a bill for a new transformer. Popping at switch off is normal with SS amps and would happen with tubes but for the standby switch which allows the sound to be muted before the power is cut. It's caused by a power surge in the circuit and is not altered by reducing volume level before switching off.

Man I hope this isn't one of those post where the users guitar cable is tore up and they blame it on the amp. You tried another cable? You tried another guitar? Possibly your pickup wiring went bad. Saw that happen before too.

You sure it's the amp or is there a shortage in a cable or pickup that comes on eventually? Sounds like the amp though just throwing that up there.
