Sonoff POW firmware has NO power on state

I have a few Sonoff basic and just bought a new Sonof POW. There is no power on state select for Sonoff POW as there is for Sonoff basic. I want to make sure that my Sonoff POW is always on when it is powered again after a power cut. Any idea what should I do?

I am asking my colleagues for a link to the software for sonoff pow v2.0
It's fine to have an Power On Indicator LED to get an always on state.
But...
My Suggestion is to configure if the power-switch in the app is disabled (or eliminated) in the main-screen of the app, so you can't accidently switch off a device (fridge, computer, ...) you only want to monitor the power consumtion whith the POW/POW R2.
When I'm reading the problems with the melting case in consequence of a (to) high current the on/off button on the detail screen should stay as an Emergency switch.

What do you think of my suggestion to disable the power-switch?

 

Upgareded POW to 2.6.1 and device stopped reporting power usage. The best sign of bad software is a development team that does not full test releases. The is unacceptable and if an update fixing the problem does not occur soon I’ll be all over amazon and Facebook writing bad reviews

Firmware 2.7.0   eWeLink 3.5.4

 This is frustrating, I updated today in the hope that this big mistake will be corrected, but nothing has changed, it has been half a year since I was expecting it. I have 3 Sonoff picking up dust, and one that works badly, every time the power grid fails for a few seconds I have to turn on the Sonoff Pow R2.

The SonOff POW R2 has the same problem. This option is required to measure continuously the power, of for example a freezer. When there is a power loss for a few seconds, the SonOff POW R2 must reapply the power otherwise all of the products in the freezer are lost.
It was before in the SonOff POW and in the standard SonOff. They are running very fine and I was really disappointed that I can not use the newer SonOff POW R2

Thanks a lot for implementing this feature.
