No.  I turned it on before I left home but I've got this annoying
problem on that system where, if I don't move the mouse after turning it
on after a hibernate, the system goes back into hibernate mode again.
I've probably taken years off the life of that system by turning it on
and not remembering to switch my KVM to it in time before it powers off.

Hmm.  This sounds like a topic for a google search now that I've typed

That's interesting.  I'll have to try that next time the system is
sort of up.
