We are going on vacation next week and I will be putting my account on hold.  I was considering putting it on hold today since I may not have time to pack & send any new requests that may come before we leave.  However there is a book from my shelf on Wish List 48 hour Hold and the person still has almost 24 hours to respond.  I don't want them to miss out if they decide they want it.  If I put my account on hold now, can the person wishing for that book still request it, or will it disappear from their view?

They can still request it.  If you put your shelf on hold and they do not respond, the book will be placed on your shelf on hold until you take your vacation hold off.

Yep, that's the way to do it, Peggy, because if this person doesn't respond to the request, the book will cycle to the next person on the WL UNLESS you put your account on vac. hold before that happens.
