    Exclamation Amusing...

    We've had a new leased photocopier in the office for the last week or so, and people have been running around complaining that somebody keeps turning it off...

    I've just bothered to take a look, and noticed the energy saver button - which illuminates green when powersaving is on.

    Hit the button and it hums back to life.

    Anyone care to place any bets as to how long it will take people to notice this?

    (note - I work in a tv company - and it's taken most staff a year to realise that "Beam me up Scotty" is not funny, not clever - and leads to mysterious disappearance of their user accounts!)
