How is it possible that the Kindle Touch is automatically turned on when you first open the box?

I just watched my sister open the box for her new Kindle Touch. As soon as the box was opened, the device was turned on showing a message on screen about connecting it to a computer. I noticed the same thing when I first opened the box for mine a few months ago. How is this possible? Is the box designed in such a way to turn the device on, or does the Kindle somehow just stay turned on in a low power setting?
