Things like this is really usefull when you want to just look something up on the spot and don't want to wait for the load. My sister's HP laptop has it or something similar and it works nice, of course she didn't like it xD, they should come not activated because the stranded user doesn't open the bios to turn it off... :)
Don't you have to press a key or combination of keys to activate it? Otherwise the system boots normally?
If it's one of those things that you have to pres a key or key-combo to NOT use it during boot, then I would disable it in BIOS for sure.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
