    Rule 1 - stick a label on it...

    ..otherwise I can't blame anyone for managing (over the course of a week) to switch off both the APs covering the Junior Area

    I like your optimism there, believing that a sticker on a plug will make anyone pay the blindest bit of attention before the unplug the computer/switch/otherImportantDoodad to plug an iPod dock in. Not seen it myself but I'm willing to believe that the development of animated colour e-ink labels will finally allow a useful label to be made.

    When they allow plugs with metal cases attached to the live pin then we might get people taking notice of signs...

    I noticed a defective 13A socket in our concourse. I notified the Site Manager and stuck a big sticky label over the plug with DANGER DO NOT US written on it. Next day, the SM called me down to see it. There were three neat little rectangular holes punched through the label!

    I think the point is, that if there is a sign at least @SimpleSi can say " you didn't read the sign" and therefore it isn't his fault as he TRIED to tell people!

    Could you not move the power injector to the cabinet end?

    Maybe this is not practical in your case?

    In addition, although I can't find them at the moment, you can get little plastic covers that stick to switches preventing "accidental" operation, but still allowing them to be operated if necessary. Further, you can get covers that go over 13A sockets to prevent unplugging.
