Recently all the staff in our College were instructed to leave their computers on overnight. The techs were going to install WinXP SP2 on the computers while all the staff were home.
Early the next morning I got a phone call from a staff member telling me their computer was broken.
Fair enough, maybe SP2 borked it somehow. I asked what the problem was. They said their computer was off.
I was unsure why this was a problem so I asked them to explain to me why this was bad.
Them: "I was told to leave the computer on last night so I figured it should still be on when I got here."
Myself: "Does it give you any error messages or problems when you turn it on?"
Them: "I'm not sure, I haven't tried that yet."
Myself: "Ok, go ahead and power it on and tell me if there's any other problems with it."
Them: "Oh, what do you know! It works just great! There's no problem afterall!"
