People in danger of freezing to death can forestall their demise by staying awake and staying in motion. Maybe this has been misapplied to other situations?
I would classify this as a "button pushing" scenario. The basic idea being you have to be conscious to push the button to keep yourself alive (or in this case, generate heat. Treading water to keep from drowning would be another example).
