I don't think the T2i body has any capability to enable or disable IS.
Some Canon lenses including the 18-55mm IS have a 'tripod mode'
which disables IS when lens movement is zero.

In theory, this means that it won't make a difference whether the
IS switch is on or off. In practice, things may be different. I spend
a lot of time fiddling with the camera and the tripod when composing
tripod shots. This probably means the IS system is cycling on/off.
It is best to switch off IS for tripod shots. Then you won't need to
rely on the smart IS control system in the lens. You might also
get to take a few extra shots with the battery power you will save.
