When a computer, or mobile phone doesn't respond, often when it 'wakes up' or begins responsing again, anything entered will happen (i.e. a program will open or a call will be made) because the commands have been queued up.
Should cockpit instruments stop responding temporarily, would any already imputted commands be run once the instrument came back online, or would they have to be reentered?
If this system exists, what is it called?
Also, would it differ from a/c to a/c?
