So I was playing on my Fender Princeton Chorus (125 watt) and when I wanted to plug out the cables and put some pedals in the chain, I turned off the amplifier to prevent those very loud flicking clicks (b'coz it was 00:00 o'clock and I live in an apartment).
But when I turned it off, suddenly my PC went to life! Like, I shut down the amp, but somehow it triggered the PC power switch and turned the computer on.

I use the same power outlet for both amp and PC.

What the hell happened?
Has this ever happened to you?

Guess so. I can't curb the growing sense of disappointment inside me though...

You're welcome.

Seriously though, I have no idea. I guess suddenly unplugging the amp might send the excess surge into the computer, which may have been powerful enough to somehow jump start the computer? Maybe your computer is screwed up inside and the current somehow jumped the usual start-up bits (which would be a bit of a cause for concern, TBH)? Or maybe you just accidentally kicked the thing when you pulled out the plug? Alternatively, maybe it's just God screwing with you.

Really seriously though, you've disappointed the Pit.

You probably nearly tripped a breaker, and when it turned back on it switched your computer on because it's set to power on when it's plugged into anything.

Hard to explain and can't think for the technical term atm, but you could probably power your computer down, unplug it from the wall, and then when you plug it in it'll do the same thing.

Where's the part where you stick your dick in the USB port? I was expecting computer sodomy. Disappointed.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

I came here for a fetish to diagnose. Now I will never follow that dream. For shame Ts, for shame...

Maybe it had something to do with the electricity that was being electricitified or something. I dont know, im a doctor jim!

1 of 2 things happened:

-The amp sent a surge of electricity through the wrong of the plug, somehow ended up jumpering the power good wire through the power supply of your PC.

or

-Your power for some reason flickered quickly after you turned your amp off, and your computers CMOS settings have it set to where it's told to power on after a power failure.


Most likely the second one, but if it's the first (not as likely) you may need to get your wiring in your house checked.

Ya know, next time, TS...it'd be more entertaining if you put your dick in the USB port and the PC turned on, displaying a porn video as it powered up. Just sayin'.
