ok first of all this is not a puzzler and i dont know the answer, so dont make stuff up since i wont be able to tell :). with that said, i have a a lamp that turns on when you touch it. (you could probably figure that out since i posted stuff about it before.) it is near my bed, and it is not unlikely that i touch it accidentaly in the night, turning it on. it has three levels of brightness (controlled solely by touch). this night, i remember waking up constantly to turn it off because it was turning on. so this morning, i turned it off when i woke up. about 10 minutes later, it just turned on again. i was in the room those 10 minutes and didnt touch it. so, i got confused and turned it off again. about 7 minutes later ( i timed it sort of) it turns on again. so i turn it off for the last time and it doesnt turn on at all (on its own). my question is (duh) how does it do that? from my previous post i know that theres a capacitor in it, and when you touch it, you briefly charge the teeny capacitor and it turns on. so either something messed up inside it, or the capacitor just charged itself. anyone have an idea?
