I know what I said. You clearly don't.

I would say that's good evidence you aren't a power user, but just a
user with an application that soaks up CPU power. Everytime I forget
and start trying to treat a Windows box like a real computer, it falls
over. I haven't tried W2K, but W95, W98, WNT and WXP all do that. They
are perfectly happy so long as I treat them delicately and turn them
off at night, but if I forget and start leaving my applications open
for easy access - *poof*.
