Dan's AC sensor override (VIP mode) instructions 
Most hotels in Hawaii have an Inncom thermostat. 
To enter VIP mode:
-While you are holding "display"
- Press "off", then
- Press "Up" arrow
-Then release "display"
You still can't open/close the balcony, (It still displays if the balcony is open or closed, but it lets the AC run while the balcony is open.)
 but the AC will run if you leave it open and you won't be trapped in your room.  Plus you can also set the AC to lower temps in VIP mode.

Ideas to enter hotel rooms with electronic locks
-Many like to just tape down the latch hole to ensure easy access  (simplest way is to tape the key card over the hole)
-some will just stuff the hole with tissues (you run the risk of it slipping out)
-others rely on the poskim who allow you to ask a goy (see above)
-exterior portable lock http://www.thexlock.com/
and then there's the best one yet
-Haven't tried it at a hotel but on a cruise I tied a gartel to the inside door handle and left a little sticking out the bottom of the door. I just had to pull the gartel and the door opened. :)

Rabbi Akiva Eiger passed away on 1837 while the electric lightblub was invented on 1879..

You are correct that it makes no sense. i guess i'm not being that clear. No there will not be a knas if she is relying on a kula. the question is in what way did they allow the kula, it was only allowed in certain instances in certain ways otherwise you may not be yotzai, i.e. is the reason we light because of "oneg" or because of kovod" and that would make the diiference of where we have to light i.e. b'mokom seuda or in the rest of the house. maybe when i have more time i'll elaborate.

U-no-me!:
there seems to be confusion with the laws of hadlakas neiros i am therfore writing this to give some basic backround information.

Hadlakas Neiros Shabbos is a mitzvah m'dirabanan which goes all the way back to the days moshe rabeinu.

There is a machlokes rishonim (we will not list all of rishonim) of the reason of why we light: the mishna berura brings in the name tosafos in shabbos that reason is because of "oneg shabbos" on the other hand you have the rambam which in one place he writes it's because of "oneg" and in another place he writes that it is because of "kavod shabbos".

Both the pri megadim and Aruch Hashulchan explain that there is no contradiction in the rambam rather the rambam holds of both reasons.

The Pri Megadim explains it as following "oneg shabbos" means that you shouldn't eat where it is dark and "kavod shabbos" is for the rest of the house in order that "shelo yikashel b'eitz v'even" in order that you shouldn't bump into things.

On the other hand The Aruch Hashulchan Explains the reasons in the exact opposite, where you eat the reason is because of "kavod" and the rest of the house is because of "oneg".
Although the gemara in shabbos says the taam of hadlakas neiros is because of shalom bayis, the levush explains that it is not a third reason rather the machlokes rishonim is from where it stems does it stem from "oneg" or does it stem from kavod".

to be continued... if anyone wants
