"We had a power-cut on the weekend, so I turned off all of the plugs on the servers. I didn't want the power going on and off and frying something"
Possibly a reasonable attempt at being intelligent. If it weren't for 3 facts:
1. The powercut lasted 20 minutes
2. The good samaritan in question left the servers off for 1 hour
3. We have a 30 minute UPS.
