Protecting the power switch from accidentally switching off is good
operating practice. I wouldn't consider that unusual at all.
It reminds me of another humorous story... Remember that comedy is
someone else's tragedy.
[nice power off story]
Here is my story:
In 1992 I worked late after usual office hours on my laptop (an IBM
386) connected to the power supply and battery removed (to save
lifetime of the battery).
Then the cleaning woman stepped in and asked: "May I vacuum clean the
room?" I gave OK.
Then the screen of my laptop suddenly darkened. She pulled out the
cable of the next power outlet to plug in the vacuum cleaner. But she
unplugged the cable of my laptop.
