    Now we're getting somewhere. There is some other OS on here because
    it's required for doing BIOS updates. I booted it and shut down.
    The power cycle count increased but the power off retract count did not.

    The counts are:

    power cycle ... 111
    power off retract ... 92

    The difference is now 19; it was 18 before.
