When you go above and beyond the usual limits.
One of my favourite examples is in Final Fantasy X where each character's most powerful abilities can only be done in Overdrive.

Overdrive is when you get hyper-active due to being over-tired, over-worked, or over-stressed. Common symptoms include slurred or incoherrent speach, laughing histerically over stupid things, and improper brain function, while in a sober state.

You know you're in overdrive when you haven't had any sleep in a long time and suddenly your fatigue is taken over by this crazy ass energy that makes you act stupid.
