hehe shorting it out had nooting to do ith the fact that the screwdriver was magnetic. You can short it out with anything contuctive while its powered up, like water or a fork. I just stuck my 3 magnetic screwdrivers on my primary harddrive, not on the circut board mind you casuse that would risk shorting it out, and will leave them there for a few days I am that confident the wont mess with my data.

I will never work on a computer with out a set of good an strong magnetic drivers. It sure beats digging out those screws from the nooks and cranies
