Default Escalators

I was at Dun Laoghaire station on Sunday and I noticed the escalator to platform 3 was running. To my knowledge, there are no trains running from Platform 3 on Sunday, so most probably no-one used it all day long. In fact, there are probably less than 5 trains a day that run to / from platform 3 even on a weekday. Now, maybe the running cost of an escalator is very little, but if it's not, then why aren't they either:
1. manually switched off outside their times of use?
2. changed so that they run automatically only when passengers use them?
