During one of the loading screens I read that your sneak attacks are more successful if you shut your PipBoy off, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. Anybody know?

Thanks in advance.

That's referring to the pip boy light that you can toggle on and off. You toggle it by holding down the button you have set to open your pip boy.

Hold 'B' to turn on/off your Pip-Boy light. Obviously you'll sneak better with the light off.

They mean you should shut off the radio and the light on it. Shutting on/off the light is easy, just hold down the B button. To turn off the radio go to that screen in the pip-boy and de-select whatever station it's tuned to.
Never thought I'd be on a boat. It's a big blue watery road. Poseidon, look at me now!

Radio has no effect on sneaking.

See, I knew all of that and it didn't say "Turn off your pipboy light and radio" It said something like "It's easier to sneak up on people when you don;t have a glowing green light on your arm" I remember the part about sneaking easier when you don't have a green light on your arm.

IDK the way the slide on the loading screen said it just made me think you could shut your actual pipboy off completely - which would be pretty cool. You sneak better, but maybe you can't turn it back on during combat.
