Early in Westworld we see the people that maintain the androids using tablet like computers the turn androids on and off and to change their settings (aggressiveness - meek, confrontational - cooperative, etc.)
Later we see Maeve wake up in the maintenance area. It seems like the most obvious thing to do would be to grab a tablet and turn her off and/or change her settings yet the maintenance people instead seem scared as though they'll get in trouble.
What's going on? Why didn't they attempt to turn her off and change her settings. Later in the show she specifically directs them to change her settings. Why do they comply? Why don't they just change them to something to make her less agressive, more compliant?
