The strip probably has a "Master" outlet that powers off other devices when it detects power-down on the Master outlet.

Move the iMac's plug to another outlet.

Does the lamp come back on when his iMac wakes up?

We were thinking something along those lines. He was actually starting to like it since it cut out a step in his going-to-bed routine.

You'd think that Master functionality would be printed on the strip. Has he looked at it?

You would think so, but I have seen this kind of info printed very small, indicated by an ambiguous icon, molded into the plastic so that it was almost indistinguishable, and so on. A lot of designers of this kind of consumer equipment need to be hit with a clue-by-four and made to learn the basic elements of design for safety and human factors.

It’s a feature, not a bug!
