Anyway must have been a fluke because 10 sec is all that is needed in 99,999999999 percent of the cases.
I just assumed it was understood that when messing with *anything* at the motherboard, jumper, cable, card level ... one should do so with the power cable unplugged. Figured that was common knowledge (don't want to get shocked or anything).

But suffice it to say, it's true enough (just ask TaiDinh, that sometimes you gotta leave the CMOS clear jumper jumped for a long time.

I don't know why this is, in fact, I was sort of perplexed for days after that particular incident.

I mean ... what goes on in there anyway (in the hardware) that would require a jumper to be jumped for three hours as opposed to 20 seconds?

It's mind boggling to me.

You'd be surprised how many people don't do that. It's especially important not only for the electrical shocks but since a lot of harware like ram, video cards etc often have stand by power now. If you remove it while they have that power it might burn someting. How many people burned ram on recent boards because they moved the ram around with the computer plugged but shut down.
