Hello Mr. Lists:

I think this is common to many fingerprint-authentication schemes.  I was
talking to a friend of mine who does computer repair the other day and he said
that he's had a lot of occasions where someone drops off their laptop for
repair and he can't get past the initial bios screen because it needs a
fingerprint.

Sounds like a recipe for a hassle, especially when some of these things
apparently require fingerprints before they will start booting.
