You're assuming that I'M not one of the aliens...<G>.

Also, I've got quantum mechanics on my side. See, as soon as I lock the computer 
in the closet, it is no longer being observed. Therefore, according to the 
Uncertainty Principle, the object is neither where I left it nor NOT where I left 
it, and has, in fact, ceased to exist for all practicle purposes. So, even if a 
nanobot were to fall into the closet (the occurance of which, incidentally, would 
make no sound), it wouldn't be able to FIND the object to move.
