That happened a number of years ago in my old school building.  We had a "computer" room with 30 desktops and a server.  I was at the door talking to a student who went to lean on the wall but nailed the button instead.  The outcry was amazing since it was the end of the year were all the term papers were due.  Took this poor kid a few minutes to realize what he did.  Obviously, never did it again. :)
