3560X mode button

Is there a way to disable the mode button on a 3560x?
In their wisdom the designers at cisco decided to place this mode button exactly above port 1.
When a patchcable with a large cable-tule is inserted in port 1 this presses against the button,
and when the button is pushed down for about 30 secs the config is erased.
I remember there used to be an option at least in the older ios's, but I can't seem to find it any more.

RE: 3560X mode button

OK, of course just after I posted... smile

The answer is:

Switch(config)# no setup express

RE: 3560X mode button

Try "no setup express"

Hope this helps
