    power up是電腦專用語,只能用在機器上,指以正確的方式開機.另有一個類似的片語是power down,指以正確的方式關機.

    這個片語後面不可接人.但和人有關的,看到下面這種說法(沒有受詞):College baseball teams across the country are powering up for the new season. (見Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary p.970)

    動詞power接人的片語有power through或power past,指跑得很快,超越了其他的人.She powered through the last lap of the race.

    另有Halfway through, she powered into the lead and went on to win the race.(見Macmillan English Dictionary for Advanced Learners p.1160)
