Power Button Predicament

Today’s Adventure…

The Toni-ster: “Can you shut off the computer? Turn it completely off.”

User: “How do I do that?”

Toni-ster: “Hold the power button down for 30 seconds, or until the light goes off.”

User: “Okay, I held the button down, but there’s still a light on.”

Toni-ster: “Are you sure you turned the computer off, or was it the monitor?” *Toni-ster already knows the answer to this because she’s remoted in and the screen went blank…*

User: “Yes, it was the computer.” *You hear rattling of papers and things moving*

User: “Well,…maybe it was the monitor the blue light isn’t on any more.”

Toni-ster: “Okay, we need to turn the computer off. Find the power button on the computer.”

User: *More rumpling of papers, etc.* “Okay, I think I have it.”

Toni-ster: *Still seeing a blank screen…screen comes on…* “Are you sure you have the computer power button?”

User: “I think so, but I still see a light.”

Toni-ster: “The button should be on the little black box with the device name sticker.”

User: “Oh! That computer.”

Toni-ster: ….

User: *Holds the correct button down and turns off computer…finally!*

Toni-ster: *This is exactly why they made wine….*

Just another day in paradise! 🙂
