Sabbath Mode Refrigerator Turns Itself Off?

If it's already the Sabbath, how do I press this button to enter Sabbath mode?

Sabbath mode (also known as Shabbot mode or Shabbos mode) refrigerators such as let the fridge turn itself off on the Sabbath day. They do things like disconnect the lights or not allow the compressor to run as a direct response of human interaction. The one in the photo here has a button to press to disable it on the Sabbath, but my question is... What if you don't press the button until the Sabbath? Then you have to press a button to disable technology. Isn't that using technology on the Sabbath? :P
