Traditionally, copiers accept certain input from the control panel only when they are prepared to use that information. For example, one could select 100 copies and press the Start Print button. Further typing on the numeric keypad would be ignored until the current job is completed, since the user is not allowed to alter the number of copies while the job is running.
