    bios designed to refuse to start computer?


    Does anybody know if some bioses are designed to refuse to start the computer (untill quite a time has passed) - no light on the front, no nothing - if the computer is repeatedly switched on and off with only a short time between on's and off's. Perhaps leading people to think the computer was buggered or the on/off button was buggered.

    The idea of the bios design being, perhaps, to protect the computer from novice users treating it like a television set.

    This would be consistent with what is currently happening to me and currently happening to one other.

    Thanks any help.
