If the GP-02A can toss out its beam saber and have it remain "lit", then
there is no reason why a Zaku cannot grab the beam saber from Gundam and
have it turned off all of a sudden, despite the fact that Zakus aren't
designed to use beam saber. If you get a flash light that was left on,
it should remain on after it changes hands.
