Re: breaker tripping
No need to panic. I think what Houston was meant by "some breakers don't fully turn themselves off" is that many breakers have a "tripped" position between "on" and "off" -- they are fully off, they're just in a tripped position so you know that it has tripped and wasn't just turned off manually.
