Duration of Power Frameworks?

Question

What is the Duration of Power Frameworks? Constant? Persistent? Other?

 

If a Gadgeteer with a Gadgets Multipower, or a Metamorph with a Shapechaning VPP, is Knocked Out, do their Frameworks 'reset' to a nil configuration, and they have to reallocate things when they come to? Or do the 'settings' stay 'on' while unconscious?

There is no "duration" of a Power Framework. They're ways of organizing/grouping/buying Powers, not Powers themselves. Typically a Framework remains configured as it was when a character last used it, until he chooses to reconfigure it. (Not that it really matters most of the time, given that changing slots is a Zero Phase Action, but I can see some situations where the issue might come up.) That does not, however, mean that the slots in the Framework keep functioning; they're governed by the standard duration rules for whatever Power (and Power Modifiers) they're built with. For example, if a character has a Resistant Protection slot active, that slot continues to protect him even if he's unconscious, since Resistant Protection is a Persistent Power. OTOH, if a character has a Flight slot in use and is Knocked Out, he'll plummet to the ground because Flight is a Constant Power.
