Hey Supercubber, I think the idea is that if the power goes out while you’re running the machine (for example, if you trip the breaker because you’re making the machine work hard on a marginal amperage circuit) you don’t want it to start up again when you reset the breaker. With the machine stopped people might not think to hit the stop button so that it doesn’t run when the power is restored. If the stoppage were caused by a momentary loss of power in the mains, the machine might even restart as you are monkeying around with it trying to figure out why it stopped.
