In normal boot, only the graphic symbols are used; a lightning bolt,
a battery, and a yellow unhappy face.  These can be reproduced using
the command:

	ok show-no-power

No further explanation is given.  I presume that is what you mean by
silent.  I think that is sufficient.

In verbose boot, an explanation is also provided.  May include words

	"Unsafe to update firmware now - "
	"No external power"
	"No battery"
	"Battery low"
