I was doing my lvl 4 mission "Rogue drone herrassment" and was starting on pocket 2, when i noticed my shield booster got stuck !! And i had no option to turn it off. Neither did my mouse change cursor while hovering above it, nor did the transparent text show (it did on all other modules). So i could just sit there watching all my cap getting drained and shield getting boosted, until cap was gone.
When cap reached 0, its got unstuck again and worked correct again.
Luckily i wasent in much trouble, but it doesnt take much imagination that i could easily be flying my pod, had i been on another mission or had the situation been different.

Any one else had this?

Today I experienced same, only with armor repairer. Luckily my cap and tank held until I cleared the spawn and logged off. When I returned it worked as it should.

I have had this same problem lots of times.

It usually occurs when there is alot of lag and you try to activate the booster. After pressing it a few times you get the message that module activation is on the way and that I have to wait for it to activate.

Once it does sometimes you cannot turn it off. If you press it it will turn red as if it is about to turn off itself but it never does. It just sits there, marked in red, and proceeds to run untill you run out of cap, dock at a station or log...

It has almost gotten me killed alot of times, and now a days if it happens I will just try to get my ass out of the mission asap. It can be a bit hard if you just warped in and still havnt killed all the tackler frigs yet Evil or Very Mad

This is a old bug thats been around since beta days. It seems to resurface every time CCP do any major patch work. So I wasnt surprised when it happen to me last night, but it was my armour repairer that got stuck.

Its just one of those annoyances that will be sorted EVENTUALLY.

Although it was flashing red (off) not green
