I'm wondering what would happen if Flynn's computer (or any computer running the Grid) was turned off?

Would the programs and users simply die?

  • I presume you haven't seen the end of Tron 2. Flynn's son turns off the Grid, but not before he's saved all the inhabitants and source files on a flash drive. Assuming he hadn't done so beforehand, the Grid and everybody in it would simply go "poof" into thin air. – Valorum Sep 3 '16 at 20:15

  • Oh ok, I have seen TRON legacy many times. But my question was what happens if there's a like a power failure, or the computer crashes, where does the grid go? I guess like what you said "poof" but is there not any more description visual information? – TRON Sep 8 '16 at 15:46
