Does switching off the base station of a cordless phone with answer machine switch off the answer machine?
If the base station of a cordless phone with answer machine is turned off, does that turn off the answer machine?

If you mean turning power off to it, rather than just muting any ring sound, then yes, you are also turning off the answering machine.
The base station (which has the telephone line connected to it) contains both the radio section that links the handsets and the "answering machine" electronics.
If you have one with more than one handset, the charger base(s) for the extra handsets are not base stations, just charging docks & will have no effect.

No it wont affect the answer machine at all far as I know. I believe it just keeps the phone from ringing
