So this oscilloscope has an "auto" button on the front panel, and deep in it's menus it also has an option to lock the auto button, but once locked, you cannot unlock it without using the remote programming interface to do it. Why would anyone design something like this?

...but, whatever, it's literally just a button that you accidentally push now and then and it fucks up all of the scope's settings. So even if I weren't able to unlock it remotely, I'd still go ahead and lock it.

At the top-left of the image, I made my screenshot program replace the scope's brand name with "P.O.S." so that I'm not advertising its brand every time I post a screenshot. This thing isn't that great so I don't want to give the impression that I'm recommending it to anyone when post a screenshots.
