Comcast "Interesting" bit

Why does the Comcast cable "modem" have a switch labeled "Internet On/Off", especially when it's usually in a dark area. How many other devices have a switch that will make the device continue to have the blinkie lights yet be completely non-functional?

You've probably already guessed how I found out about this. I was just moving the fan…

It was amusing that when I called and said that I had a connection problem that there was an automated process to reset the cable "modem" without talking to a tech. When I finally talked to a tech, he pulled up my account and asked if I had lights I told him and then he told me about the button. All fixed.
