answer 5
If you shred for too long in a single session it'll get too hot and shut itself off for a while to cool down. Keeps from overheating the motor or worse sparking paper shreds and dust into igniting.

Just imagine shredding away one day for an hour and all of a sudden your shredder catches fire and ignites all of your shredded paper and paper dust! Well, not with this bad boy... It doesn't like fire. It's a cool cat.
