One sunny day, Haily was using the computer that he got from the treasure chest. Then he saw Mr. Lee using his laptop. When Mr.Lee clicked the user name, ‘me lee’ he got a pop up on his task bar saying, “Do you want to make a new task bar?” Then Mr. Lee clicked, “Yes.”

And he got two task bars. On the second task bar, there was a button saying, “If you want more task bar, click here.” So Mr. Lee clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked and clicked until thousands times. Then Mr. Lee asked Haily, “Is the task bar unlimited?” Haily answered, “Maybe?”

The next day, Haily clicked the task bar and the computer was suddenly switched off. Haily rushed to Mr. Lee and told Mr. Lee that the computer was switched off by itself. Haily said that it must be a ghost that switched off the computer. 

Haily accidently switched off his computer.

Mr. Lee took a plate of cookies to the computer. Mr. Lee said,”I love these cookies.” Haily said, “I’m not talking about cookies; I’m talking about the computer, it switched off by itself.”

A plate of Mr. Lee's chocolate chip cookies.

Mr. Lee asked, “Did you click on anything before the computer got switched off?” Haily answered, “Yes.” Mr. Lee asked, “What did you click on?” Haily said, “I clicked on a button that have a circle and a line in it.” Mr. Lee answered, “Do you know what is the button for?” Haily said, “I don’t know…” Mr. Lee said, “That is the power button.”

Then Haily followed Mr. Lee to visit his friend, Marana. When they arrived, Haily told Marana that his computer had switched off by itself. Marana said, “Maybe you accidentally clicked the power button.” Haily said, “No, I only clicked on a button that have a circle and a line in it and the computer suddenly switched off by itself.” Mr. Lee said, “Haily did not accidentally clicked the power button. Actually he didn’t even know that the button was the power button!”
