      When running something critical like a fridge or a Server, the plug must never enter an off state even if someone by accident hits the switch button. Can you add such an ability to lock the plug in the on state?

      Totally agree this is needed.  Some people have even physically opened up the units and modified them make them always on, since there have been many glitches with the software operation – turning off loads after brief power outages.

      Looks harder than I thought. I opened up the back of one but it is not enough. I will have to also remove the board from the input plug to see how I can bypass the relay.

      There is a write up on the forum with photos.  Just hard to search for it.  I will try and find it.

      Found it…

      Thank you very much. So we just need a jumper that can be soldered from the top. Nice.
