From the game Maniac Mansion for the NES.

Be careful about draining the pool or shutting off the circuit breaker. If you do either at the same time that Dr. Fred turns the power off, sometimes the countdown to nuclear explosion can't be stopped. Even if the power comes back on, the countdown sound effect is still heard and eventually the house explodes.
