Mars Rover Curiosity: An Inside Account from Curiosity's Chief Engineer - Rob Manning, Inc. Blackstone Audio,  Inc., William L. Simon, Bronson Pinchot

"With fault protection running, on occasion the rover would suddenly assess that something had gone wrong. It would turn off equipment and turn on other equipment. Of course, all this would happen without the rover asking permission from the ATLO test conductors. We were regularly getting urgent midnight phone calls complaining that the rover had taken over and that the ATLO test was ruined. Telling them that they should be nicer to the rover did not seem to help."
