Orphaned non-free media (File:Tetrisgb.jpg)[edit]

Ambox warning blue.svg Thanks for uploading File:Tetrisgb.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Hazard-Bot (talk) 04:17, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

BIOS that boots system after a power failure?[edit]

Hello, Mr Burns. I saw your contribution in Reboot (computing) article but I am afraid I must seriously request a source for the claim that "most BIOSes" can boot the computer after a power failure. The source must clear about what "most" constitutes and the fact that it is the BIOS that does the restoration of power.

Best regards,

I cannot find any sources which confirm that most BIOSes offer that feature. However, I can find sources that confirm that it is used at least on some BIOSes.[2] (Page 32) [3] (Page 4-5 ~ 69) I will change the wording from "most" to "some". --MrBurns (talk) 08:40, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
PS: the feature is not always called "Restore on AC/Power Loss", it sometimes has different names like "Power On After Power Fail". --MrBurns (talk) 08:46, 9 April 2013 (UTC)
I just came across this, and would add that your statement about most BIOSes having a feature that can turn the computer on (or back on) upon power loss, is true. Practically every computer that I have serviced has this feature in the BIOS; although, to date, I have not found it in any laptops. The option is frequently a tri-state selector named something like “On power failure” with 3 options named something like: “Restore previous state”, “Turn on”, and “Stay off”.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
