    Sat my pipe down on the night stand and then noticed it turned itself on8-o. Picked it back up, and the led went out. Put it back, it lit up again. After some head scratching I searched the junk drawer in the top of the night stand and discovered the cause. A cluster of hobby magnets! A strong magnetic field will engage the switch. So be careful around your sub-woofers and such:D.

    Thought I'd post a quick update. I have since used this trick with the magnet to revive a pipe I thought was dead. The draw was unresponsive even with fully charged battery. By moving a magnet around until I found the "sweet spot" I could engage the stubborn switch. I've since drilled a small shallow hole into the pipe and secured a smaller magnet there. Voila! It's Alive! It's Alive! Muhuuuhahhahhaha!
