This was the result of a woodworker using a Festool sander that had a powercut, and left the sander sitting on top of their workbench.  The power came back on while they were out of the shop, and when they did return this is what was found!

Not sure just how many other brands of sander could achieve this – being balanced enough to maintain their position simply through their own weight.  One way or another, it is a good warning of what not to do (and how not to leave equipment) when the power goes out unexpectedly.
