once i get a machine up and running, i try to not power it off if at all
possible.  so, since i don't have to deal with rolling blackouts, and from
the 3/4 of a month that i've lived here the power seems to be pretty reliable
i don't think i should have to bother.  however, if i do power it off and
it loses it's config just once, it gets new batteries. :)
