It has happened to me sometimes.
It haven´t happened me before I think.
You mean, like my coffee pot? Yah....
Not the TV, but a tea kettle on the stove once.
Badly scorched, lucky there wasn't a house fire by the time we got back.
Yeah, a few times. The power button is touchy, and sometimes the TV will come back on after I've turned it off if I don't wait a few seconds to make sure it's really off.
Yes, I have. I forget or I will leave it on for my pets.
I had a cat once that liked sitting on a pillow watching TV while we were out of the house.
Yes, I try not to make a habit of it....
Have done that.
