The lock cylinder was usually keyed = into the church's high-security masterkey system so that all legitimate users could use an EXISTING local key which was inevitably on a ring with all their other keys -- often including their CAR keys.   The result.... since it was difficult if not impossible to lock up the building or start one's car with the keys still hanging from a console keycheek we NEVER had an instance of the LEFT-ON-BLOWER-SYNDROME!   A welcome side-effect was the comfort of knowing that the ubiquitous <hidden> key-become-lost could never occur. More than once I have managed to arrive at the console without my keys but was always able to turn up an operable key from someone -- the janitor's begrudged masterkey on one harried occasion.   keyplayr CHWK BC > > I have seen a switch with a spring-wound timer that slowly moves toward = the > "OFF" position until it finally turns the organ off.
