I get home at 11pm last night after 4 hours of inkwork. (What a treat.)
The wife and I talk for a while before settling down about 11:45. I toss and turn for a while as I usually do. At 12:30 I hear a windows box shutting down, my wife hears it too. I look up and see a light flash in the hall.
I grab the SA/XD45GAP out of the nightstand and the halogen light and start to sweep the house. I'm on code red, my wife has the cat and the phone and is ready to jump into the closet. My trigger finger is still on the slide, but I'm ready to engage anything that moves. I clear the office, bathroom and loft and head downstairs. I clear all of that and head back to bed.
Turns out the laptop was next to the bed and shutdown due to low battery. The flash was my wife's cell going to charge complete in the bathroom. I think I finally drifted off about 2am when the adrenaline wore off.
i wonder if there is a thief who would risk getting caught because they wanted to shutdown windows properly. :^)
