Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?


Re: Not Unique...

"I have also had a Unix server where the power button and CD Drive eject were very close together, that one got a card flap over the power button."

Yup, had to make a flap for the UPS on the home PC. It was a low flat box with the power switch on top and it was almost on the floor. A real problem with cats who walk anywhere they want to.

But mice are a problem too. I had a mouse fall off the keyboard tray and it hit the power strip power button. For that one it worked to rout the power cords over the switch and velcro them together.
