On the way out, he didn't realise that he also need to beep out, and pressed the big button next to the door; the Big Red Button.

Someone who shouldn't have been in the computer room in the first place managed to hit the Big Red Button high up on the wall, two meters away from the door, instead of the Average Size Blue Button next to the door, trying to get out.

And there was the install team for the no-break setup. After doing a test run on the freshly-installed diesel before adding the generator and other stuff, they found that the "Engine Stop" button wasn't functional, and hit another promising-looking button nearby. Of course it was Big, and Red, and this one was hooked up.
