This question already has an answer here:
When Neo is sitting in his cubicle after being reamed out by the boss for being late to work, his monitor is off and he doesn't appear to be working - in fact, his monitor doesn't appear to even be connected to a computer. Why is this? Were the filmmakers just being cheap and hoping that no one would notice, or is there some other reason? Is it possible that there's some kind of symbolism here?
