I am powering three pedals with a power adapter, do I need to unplug the input on all the pedals when I am not playing?

I don't see why you would need to... but maybe there's something I'm not aware of...?

yes, however your batterys will die if your pedals aren't plugged into the wall via a/c adapter. I would recommend a serge protector just to be safe too.

Depends for how long.
Mine get really hot if I leave them in.

good luck with that! if the world have a nuclear war 3 things would survive; cockroaches, twinkies, and boss pedals

Mine have been plugged into the outlet for over a year without being disconnected for more than a few minutes every now and then and nothing has happend. I don't see why anything would happen anyway...

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It will get hot and be a waste of energy (because you know, an extra $2 bucks on the power bill is a huge jump) but it won't damage them in anyway.

Your power supply will wear out much more quickly as it draws current whether the pedals are on or off. I hook my One Spot to an outlet strip with its own switch. When I'm not using the pedals I just switch it off.

if everyone wasted $2 per month worth of energy just because $2 isn't a lot of money, more people in africa would starve to death...

But yeah, it won't do anything bad but its wasteful. if you are running pedals on batteries, while they are plugged in it drains the battery. that basically means that if you are leaving them plugged in with the power on and something connected to the input jack, you are draining the worlds batteries. but yeah, don't worry about your FX pedals...

It shouldn't hurt your pedals, but it'll hurt your electric bill.

there we go, worried about the electric bill and not the environment again...
