Actually, to be more precise, the scene to which you refer took place before Sammuel L. Jackson cut the power to the compound in order to remedy to computer lock up caused by Nedry. Nedry only shut down the power in order to escape. Apparently, some kind of back up system kicked into place which powered the lights and the computers and just about everything else, except the fences.

They had back-up generators so it doesn't matter but the back-up generators couldn't power the fences. I know this because I read the book.

Ceiling fans are not more important than lights or electric fences. Some backup generators. Sorry, good idea though . . . .Could have been the wind!

In response to the ceiling fans being on while Ellie & Mr Hammond are eating ice cream, there are still a few scenes before the power is even switched off by Mr Arnold. Didn't Nedri's 'White rabbit object' command just turn off the fences, door locks & cameras?

Actually, they are trying to undo the white rabbit program but can't. The only way to stop it is to shut of the power and switch it on again, thereby rebooting the system. It does work, but everything goes to 'stand-by' mode and is waiting for them to be manually turned on from the utility shed on the other side of the park.

it's funny, though, Hammond comments about the ice cream "it was all melting"

Nedry only turned off the necessary systems to get to the dock. Ceiling fans in the Visitors Center weren't in the way, so he left those on.

Nedry did not in fact kill ALL the power, just the fences and phone lines.

I agree, the entire park was not shutdown until Mr Arnold "Shut down the entire system". Before that Dennis Nedry only shut down security systems, Fences and door locks. Not electrictity all together. But understandably this could be mis-interpreted.

The ice cream was out with the rest of the desserts at the buffet ( that the kids goto and eat from when they come back to the visitors center). The ice cream was melting because it was set out for the guests to eat when their tour was done.

ryochan, the ice cream was melting because it was put out with all the rest of the food to be eaten after the tour, when the children arrive back to the visitor center they start eating from the large buffet, the ice cream would have been melting but not because the power was off, the lights and fans etc were only turned off after Samuel L Jackson turned off the power to reboot the system. This scene occurs before that.

If he only turned power off for the gate and locks then why would the ice cream be melting?
