I really dont want to do that. The time here is now 22.56, saturday,
and there is no one very close to the machine.
I called a guy earlier this day, and he opened the door to the room
to let air cool down, but somehow he must have screwed up, and the door
have locked again.

I guess I just make an apm-module, modprobe it, call poweroff, and
hope for the best.
