The only possible situation I can think of in which a PowerLink might unintentionally come apart would be during shifting while pedalling backwards with a poorly lubed chain (because we know everyone does this often)... and then possibly not even. I've never had a problem with PowerLinks coming apart when they weren't supposed to. OTOH, I've had enough Shimano chain breakage that I've decided to replace them outright. It's easier maintenancewise too.
