An Active is imprinted with a personality package and sent out on engagements, usually lasting under ten hours, but sometimes lasting for up to three days. However, "Man on the Street" introduced the concept of a sleeper active who lives with a dormant skill set or personality. The Doll's personality may or may not be an imprint, but there is an imprint "sleeping" inside his or her brain awaiting activation. A voice command or script activates and deactivates the dormant imprint. Since the Dollhouse does not have the ability to wipe its Actives remotely, it is likely that the deactivation is simply that - the imprint remains in the Active's brain, but becomes dormant again.
