Maybe it was the aeronautical equivalent of what truckers call white line fever. :)

Didn't happen too seldom in the past.That's why the 767 has an EICAS message which says: pilot responseIf you don't respond within a few minutes the master caution comes on.If you still don't respond the warning siren comes on a few minutes later.RegardsBernt Capt 767

Ah yes ... Like the railroad locomotive "dead man's switch". Except I think it's a pushbutton these days.

Yeah, it's now a pushbutton you have to push every few minutes....From what I've heard, too many engineers were thwarting the dead man's pedal's protection by putting a lunchbox or other heavy object on it instead of their foot, so they're now using something a little more foolproof...
