Another one to remember, but this is true for most aircraft I would have thought is to make sure the electrical power source is not swapped during an FMC Nav Database update as this can kill the FMC.

Ive just been reminded about doing the stall warning test when the Hyd pumps are on, the slats will come out and if you lock yourself out of the flight deck, shut the APU down on the nose leg.

By shutting down the apu, it will turn off power and unlock that fancy new bulletproof door if it has an electronic lock.

No issue inflight. The aircraft is still powered. What Skydrolboy is saying is that if the aircraft is on the ground on APU (or ground powe, I assume) and you lock yourself out of the flightdeck, just kill power to the aircraft.
When seconds count, the police are minutes away, or may not come at all.

I understood what was meant.What I was curious was.Was the solenoid only de energized on Grd with no power.But in Air has no effect.What caused it.The Air-Grd sense.

HAWK21, there is a switch under a red guard in the flight deck witch you switch on to lock the door, kill the power on the nose leg, you de-energise the switch. Air grnd sense??? looking too deep into this I think!

Hawk, the key is power. Power on, door stays locked. Power off, door is unlocked. No need for a/g sense. APU is just a source of power.

Would it not be easier and probably quicker to just enter the access code into the keypad and wait for it to go through the auto-unlock sequence?? Not only would it be quicker but it would mean that the APU is not shut-down without having time to cool down and then having to be re started once you get into the flightdeck.
